S SAN FRANCISCO, CA - August 25, 2014 - Ribbon Supply, a leading wholesale distribution company providing a broad range of products and services to professional customers, announced today that its operations will continue as usual following the 6.0 earthquake that shook Bay Area residents in their beds early Sunday morning.
The temblor was recorded at 3:20 a.m. and was located about four miles northwest of American Canyon and six miles south-southwest of Napa, according to the Menlo Park-based U.S.G.S. The earthquake was reportedly felt as far north as Ukiah to as far south as Salinas. Blue Ribbon Supply Company and its facilities in South San Francisco experienced no damage from this weekend's 6.0-magnitude earthquake.
Blue Ribbon Supply Company's distribution center, delivery truck fleet, communication and data processing systems have been inspected and are all operating at full capacity and no staff were injured during the quake. Although a few Blue Ribbon Supply customers reported damage to their facilities in Napa Valley, Blue Ribbon Supply is committed to making sure they are not left without the products they need to get their businesses operating again.
"Since we learned of the quake, we immediately reviewed Blue Ribbon Supply's operational capabilities and determined we would be able to ensure our customers are serviced, without interruption or delay", reported Blue Ribbon Supply Company General Manager and Sales Team Leader, John Dilena. He continued, "As experienced by our customers following the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake, we will do everything possible to make sure our customers can rely on us. Customer service has always been one of our highest priorities!"
