Statements – Flooding and Evacuation Alert - Grand Forks, BC

Our heartfelt thoughts are with our employees, friends and neighbors in Grand Forks, as flooding in the BC interior impacts the region.  The water is expected to continue to rise in coming days.  In keeping with safety procedures, we have initiated a temporary shut down at our Grand Forks manufacturing facility.  We will continue to assess conditions to determine any further course of action, as the situation develops.  The city of Grand Forks currently remains under an evacuation alert.  Our attention now turns to those affected and the needs of our community.  At ROCKWOOL, we believe people are at the core of everything we do.  We will be in touch with local agencies and officials to establish how we can best help and offer our support. 


To our valued customers, with operations temporarily suspended at our Grand Forks facility, those of you supplied by this ROCKWOOL location may experience longer than usual lead times until our operations fully resume.  For further information or a status on your order, please contact your local sales representative or specifications manager.  You can also call ROCKWOOL directly at 1-800-265-6878.


To members of the community, neighbours, partners and stakeholders, it is important during challenging times to keep the lines of communication open.  We, at ROCKWOOL, will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available or as the situation unfolds.  Stay connected with us through our social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn or at
