While Hurricane Sandy affected locations spanning over 900 miles, the New York and New Jersey areas suffered the worst from this historic storm. Schindler employees have been working around the clock to respond to and assist customers. We have also dispatched some of our top engineering talent to support the recovery effort.
Schindler’s call centers remain open and operational; however, our response may be delayed in areas experiencing unreliable communications, no electricity and flooding. When safe to do so, and when applicable government authorities permit, Schindler will perform customer premises inspection, and will prepare proposals for necessary repair and/or replacement. Our resources are being deployed and prioritized in a manner consistent with the facility type and service provided. For example, hospitals are receiving priority attention and assistance.
Schindler extends its thoughts and prayers to all of those who have been affected by this devastating storm.
