Hilton Hospitable

01/01/2006


For helping to restore critical fire and life-safety protection in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a major industry player is tipping its hat to the Hilton Hotels Corp.

According to Michael Lohr, director of service marketing for SimplexGrinnell, the hotel chain stepped forward to provide the fire-protection and life-safety company with hotel space to support its displaced employees and to provide a staging base for the service technicians repairing and retesting fire and life-safety systems damaged by the disaster and subsequent flooding.

"This gesture says a lot about Hilton as a company and about the strength of our relationship," said Lohr, who added the two have had a longtime business relationship. "It helped some of our employees whose own lives were affected by Hurricane Katrina. At the same time, Hilton has contributed to the well-being of the community by supporting SimplexGrinnell's efforts, under the most difficult of circumstances, to provide fire and life-safety protection."
