Traube meets the needs when devastation occurs
In the early hours of Saturday, Dec. 11, 2021, a cluster of 3 tornadoes, including an EF-3 tornado with estimated 120 mph wind speeds, tore through Bowling Green, Kentucky. The National Corvette Museum Motorsports Park sustained a direct impact that caused catastrophic damage to the entire facility.
In the aftermath of the devastation, Traube was immediately called into action to provide temporary structures and services to a national client with operations in the Bowling Green area. The NCM team viewed, first-hand, Traube’s services and were impressed with the offerings installed in the Bowling Green area and immediately connected with Traube. NCM tasked Traube with creating temporary space for guest check-in, retail area and classroom space to allow the facility to continue operations during their “road to recovery”.
Traube geared up and installed a 15-by-30-meter Losberger P3 Uniflex engineered structure. Traube provided full PVC hardwall and Glass wall enclosures, interior gable dividers, LED lighting and glass doors. Traube used their custom structure weight system to provide immediate installation without having to penetrate the ground surface. Once the temporary structure from Traube’s rental division was installed and operational, the NCM team expressed interest in purchasing a custom structure from Traube. Traube began the custom sales process and a new structure complete with glass, hardwall and doors was on order and later installed.
“Traube Tents has been an incredible partner to the NCM Motorsports Park as we continue to rebuild following the tornado,” says Greg Waldron, Executive Director. “Their immediate response to our request, along with their ability to expedite the assembly of the tent allowed me to focus on our immediate recovery effort. Since day one, they have taken care of our needs in a prompt and professional manner. They will forever be a part of our ‘come back’ story!”
Traube Tents & Structures CEO, Steve Traube, commented “Traube is committed to our clients and their local communities. Through Traube’s Disaster Relief Division, we are able to provide immediate assistance to help piece communities back together during their time of hardship.”
