- The Eastwood Company - Official Press Release
The Eastwood Company, a leading supplier of automotive restoration tools and finishes, sustained fire damage to its headquarters in Pottstown, PA, on July 9. No one was injured in the fire, which was contained to a small section of the building; however parts of the warehouse and distribution center were severely damaged, affecting the company’s ability to ship customers’ orders. Smoke and water damage as a result of the fire also affected the company’s offices and contaminated merchandise in the adjacent portions of the warehouse.
The Eastwood Company’s shipping operations have been temporarily delayed while fire investigators and cleanup crews continue their work. Eastwood is working with vendors, business partners and local authorities in assessing the situation to be fully back in operation, as soon as possible. Customers can continue to place orders on eastwood.com and Eastwood will provide shipping updates, as they become available. “Eastwood apologizes for the inconvenience and thanks our customers for their business and understanding during this temporary setback,” said Brian Huck, Eastwood’s President and CEO.
