LONG BEACH, Miss. -- Nearly two weeks after Hurricane Katrina made its mark on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, ATM manufacturer Triton began its first full day open for business at both Long Beach facilities on Monday.
Triton facilities received minor structural damage. In the past two weeks, Triton has been able to restore working conditions and operations. Phone lines are up and email is now available, the company said. Triton is now focused on restoring all services to customers and to getting things back to normal as soon as possible, it said.
With 80% of Triton's employee base reporting for work Monday, Triton production lines were up and running and shipped 25 units by the end of the day. On Monday, President Brian Kett said these numbers exceeded his expectations, but were not surprising. With business operations off to such a strong start, he expects to resume normal production well ahead of schedule.
Long Beach, Miss.-based Triton is the largest provider of off-premise ATMs and ATM management software in North America, it said, and it has more than 133,000 installations in more than 23 countries worldwide. It is an operating company of Dover Electronics Inc., a subsidiary of Dover Corp.
