Daniel Choi, Superior Essex CEO, said that the trauma is not easily erased but it can be eased.

“It’s heartbreaking to see the images of loss and the stories of suffering,” he said. “We understand how fortunate we are that our operations have been able to avoid the path of Hurricane Ian without incident, but we also know that many others were not.”

“Recovery will take many months, so we are choosing to help those impacted return to some form of normalcy as soon as possible.”

Each of the aforementioned brands have donated a combined $30,000 to the American Red Cross, as well as committed to matching up to an additional $30,000 in employee donation matching to follow

“There has been catastrophic loss to personal life as well as professional opportunity,” Choi said. “As the devastation continues to be measured, Superior Essex and its employees across North America want to contribute to those affected.”
