Advanced Plating posted this statement on their facebook page:

“As you may have seen today, Advanced Plating has fallen victim to a fire. At this time, the cause of the fire is not known, but we do know that half of our facility is a total loss. However, if you follow Advanced Plating, you know that we are no strangers to disasters. We have survived a fire before, as well as the horrific flood of 2010. While it will be a difficult and long road to come back from this, rest assured that we will bounce back, we will rebuild, and we will be back stronger than ever. If disaster has taught us anything over the years, it is that we are resilient and have an amazing support group. Now, communication will be down for a while as you might have guessed, but please be patient as we access the contents of the building and work to collect and assemble all of the customers’ parts and pieces. At this point it will be tough to say that we can account for everything, as this happened with zero warning, but we will do everything we can to take care of our customer base. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support and prayers as we sort everything out. As soon as contact is restored, we will let everyone know how we can be reached.”
