SEL Gives 30–50% Disaster Discount to Customers With Hurricane Katrina Damage and Makes $100,000 Donation to the American Red Cross

Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (SEL) has always provided special discounts and expedited delivery to customers that have suffered from disastrous natural events. After witnessing the devastation to much of the Southeast United States following Hurricane Katrina, SEL is increasing its existing disaster discount, offering 30-50% off list price, depending on product type.

On a day-to-day basis, it's easy to take for granted the convenience of electric power, but during a disaster like Hurricane Katrina, electric power is not just convenient—it is critical. Hospitals, fire stations, and medical clinics need electric power to care for the sick and injured. Fresh water and food supplies depend on the availability of electric power. SEL recognizes the extraordinary challenges created by a natural disaster, and wants to assist in the quick and safe restoration of electric power.

SEL is providing a $100,000 donation to the American Red Cross to help in the relief effort, and many of SEL’s more than 1000 employees are personally donating to these efforts. SEL is eager to help restore power as rapidly as possible.
