Supporting Our Maintenance Community – Houston Food Bank
UpKeep Donates to Maintenance Needs in our Communities
Last month, an ammonia leak happened at the Houston Food Bank and forced them to throw away nearly 2 million pounds of fresh food, worth almost $3 million. The leak happened as the result of a cooling fan caving into a refrigerated area. The incident allowed ammonia into the refrigerated area, contaminating everything inside.
The Houston Food Bank operates 24 hours a day, and serves over 1 million people who struggle with food insecurity in the Greater Houston area. It is a massive 308,000 square foot facility that operates a warehouse, kitchen, and conference center.
We are proud to support the Houston Food Bank today in order to boost their maintenance program to ensure such a costly incident does not happen again. Regular maintenance is so important, especially in large facilities, in order to keep the company operating and prevent unplanned downtime.
