Trantech Issues Statement on Explosion

web posted June 11, 2014

EDGEFIELD – Trantech President Greg Horton issued the following statement on Tuesday following the explosion at the facility on Monday.

“Yesterday there was an accident at our facility in Edgefield which sadly has resulted in injuries to three of our valued employees. Two of those employees are now recovering at the Burn Center in Augusta, Georgia. Another has thankfully been released from the hospital. Our thoughts and prayers are with those men and their families.
 
One of our greatest fears is a situation like what occurred on Monday. Ensuring the safety of those who work at Trantech is a cornerstone to the way we operate our business. We are complying with all governmental inspections. Trantech is working diligently to investigate the root cause and corrective action required.  We will not re-open our Edgefield plant until we feel confident in the safety of our hard-working employees.”
