Delaware's United Electric Supply rebuilds headquarters after massive tornado damage

After a tornado ripped the roof off of its Wilmington, Del., headquarters on Sept. 28, United Electric Supply Co. has implemented its existing disaster recovery plan and is now operating out of a temporary new location. About 100 employees were in the building when the tornado struck, but all escaped without injury, according to news reports.

United Electric Supply is leasing a 60,000-square-foot temporary headquarters in Boulden Interchange Park. The company now has full telephone and data service at this facility, and after a massive effort on the part of its employees, has a self-selection counter and temporary warehouse. Daily delivery of stock from suppliers also helped get the temporary facility operational.

Renovations have already begun on the company's tornado-damaged building. The building is structurally sound, and the company expects to move back in within six months.
