BEACHWOOD, Ohio—Power management company Eaton said its four manufacturing facilities in Puerto Rico have resumed operations following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
The plants, with a total of about 1,500 employees, primarily produce low- and medium-voltage circuit protection components.
"We have been in contact with almost all of our employees and continue our outreach efforts to communicate with our remaining employees across Puerto Rico," Craig Arnold, Eaton's chairman and CEO, said in a news release. "Our thoughts are with our employees and their families. Company actions are underway to assist with the relief efforts and to support the affected communities where our employees live and work. We have also established a relief fund to assist our employees as they begin to rebuild their lives."
He added that the facilities "experienced only modest damage. We have resumed operations in all facilities, and at some plants are nearing output levels we had before the storms. We continue to experience logistics and infrastructure challenges, as the island struggles to repair the significant damage to infrastructure."
