Promark has called Houston home since its founding in 1957 and, as of Thursday, August 31, the Promark drumstick factory is running without restriction, working overtime throughout this week to recover lost production due to Harvey.

With usual freight not operating until September 5, the factory also arranged an extra shipment with six pallets of finished goods to minimize backorders, if not avoid them entirely. After this week’s production, the factory should be back on track as usual with no further impact from the storm.

A personal thank you from Jason Talas, Promark Production Manager – “We are very thankful for all the support we have received during this unbelievable disaster and are blessed that everyone is safe, back at work, making Promark drumsticks…the best in the world!”

While all employees and their families are safe, many have experienced extensive water damage to their homes and property.  As a result, D’Addario banded together and created this gofundme page . Funds raised will be matched by a Company donation of up to $2,500. In less than the first 24 hours, the company managed to raise almost $5,000, far exceeding their $2,500 goal.

Please consider donating to our relief fund to help them. Any leftover money from this fund will be donated to a disaster relief fund to help Houston residents recover from this tragedy.
