Flooding from heavy rains led to the temporary closure of Johnson Outdoors' plant in Binghamton, N.Y., the company said last week.

 

The plant is home to the company's Outdoor Equipment Group, which makes consumer, commercial and military tents and camping equipment.

 

The company's finished goods warehouse remains open, with shipments expected to resume once local roads have re-opened this week, the company said.

 

The company says the full extent of the flooding and its financial impact is not known. The company expects insurance coverage to begin after $1.2 million in losses are incurred.

 

"Employee safety and well-being are the company's primary concerns at this time, and efforts are already under way to bring operations back on line as quickly as possible," the company said in a statement.

 

Johnson Outdoors, headquartered in Racine, Wis., makes outdoor recreation equipment including watercraft and marine electronics.
