Aris Horticulture’s Keepsake Plants production facility in Leamington, Ontario, sustained damage during a tornado over the weekend.
This tornado was part of the same system that passed through Ohio and Michigan on Saturday night. No one was hurt but several of the greenhouses were damaged. The office building received minimal damage.
No disruption to daily shipments is anticipated due to the storm and Aris is operating as normal. Growers relying on product distribution will receive material on schedule. Local greenhouse growers are banding together to provide assistance.
Over the next week, Aris will be doing an assessment of the damage to the property and developing a long-term facility recovery plan. This will ensure Aris can continue to provide a reliable supply of product for its customers through a combination of repairing existing facilities and constructing new buildings.
