On July 29, Tiger-Sul’s facility located in Atmore, Alabama experienced a fire after a lightning strike. In mid-April the company announced the facility has fully restored its production of Sulphur bentonite. Some production was restored in late November. And before full production was achieved, Tiger-Sul focused resources to fulfill customer orders through its plants in Stockton, California, and Irricana, Alberta.

“Looking at pictures of the damage caused by the fire, and realizing this occurred less than nine months ago, reinforces what an extraordinary undertaking this has been to return the plant to full – and even expanded – production capabilities,” says Don Cherry, Tiger-Sul President and CEO. “I can’t say enough about the amazing Tiger-Sul team that made this happen. They overcame any and all obstacles to bring Atmore back, and make it even better. This facility will continue to be critical in helping us meet the increasing demand among both local and global customers. And as a company, Tiger-Sul continues to be committed to adhering to strong health and safety programs and protocols for the benefit of our employees, our customers and the communities in which we do business.”

After the spring busy season, the employees will have grand re-opening event to recognize everyone involved in restoring fertilizer production at the facility in Atmore.
