How FM Global helped USG turn a 500-year flood into a non-event;
As one of the leading ceiling tile manufacturers in the US, it’s vital that USG Corporation are able to meet customer demand. So when their Cloquet plant was hit by the worst flood in the history of the St. Louis River, the effects could have been devastating. But thanks to USG and FM Global’s long-running alliance, the plant escaped relatively unscathed and was on schedule and up and running five days later.
Watch the video to see how FM Global identified the flood exposure before it happened, then worked together with USG to implement flood mitigation measures – such as installing flood gates and a new 100-foot wall – to protect the site from serious damage.
