Houston, Texas (August 29, 2017) - The business operations of SGS North America in the regions affected by Hurricane Harvey will remain closed until further notice. SGS North America remains focused on the safety of the community, our employees and their families.

You probably have all been following the situation unfolding. As of this morning, reports continue to come in of evacuations, trapped homeowners and historic flooding conditions from across the Houston area.

We continue to monitor Hurricane Harvey and assess for potential impacts to any of our operations in the Gulf of Mexico. For now, all locations in the affected area will remain closed until further notice. We are reaching out to our network to reroute testing as soon as possible.

As a safety precaution, we are asking all our Gulf Coast employees to stay home and to continue following instructions from local authorities.
