Storm Damages Outlook Group’s PlantMay 2011
NEENAH, WI—On a day when a dozen tornadoes rocked the state of Wisconsin, a storm packing heavy winds tore through the area here April 11, temporarily displacing the employees of packaging and direct mail printer Outlook Group.
According to Fox TV 11, Outlook Group appeared to be the hardest hit of the local homes and businesses, with its building in "tatters" and debris strewn a football field away. No one was injured. Roughly 100,000 square feet of the company's 650,000-square-foot facility was impacted, according to a report on its Website.
The Outlook management team, led by Glen Yurjevich, president and CEO, set up temporary headquarters at a local hotel to map out a plan for the resumption of work for the firm's 365 employees. They quickly mobilized; about 70 percent of the Outlook crew was already back on the job by April 13, and all employees were reporting for work by April 18.
Repairs to the plant were scheduled to begin the last week of April, according to WFRV-TV Channel 5 in Green Bay, WI. It was not immediately known how long it would take to complete all of the repairs.
