Our Panama City Manufacturing Facility has had its share of hardships in recent years, but they always manage to persevere. In October of 2018, the Plant and its employees were struck by Hurricane Michael, a Category 4 hurricane that devastated Panama City, our employees, and our plant.
Conner helped its employees get back on their feet, and the Lugoff and Hogansville plants chipped to make sure that customers weren’t disrupted. Unfortunately, that still meant that employees were left working in less-than-ideal conditions for over a year due to insurance issues. Much of that recovery time was spent working in a large tent to make sure customers received their orders.
In May 2021, the Panama City Manufacturing Facility moved to a new, and better location so that it can serve its customers better. The new plant location is also much better for employees. Today the Panama City Manufacturing Facility is stronger than ever.
