ROSENBURG, Texas — Solid tire and rubber track supplier Nighthawk Tires is offering a 25-percent discount on its products to firms involved in post-Hurricane Harvey clean-up efforts in Texas and Louisiana.
Nighthawk Tires specializes in solid tires and tracks for the construction industry, with fitments for forklifts, skid-steers, telehandlers, etc., selling under the Dura-Flex and Dura-Core brands for the tire and track lines, respectively.
Kareem Shaaban, vice president of sales and marketing, said the company decided to offer what amounts roughly to wholesale pricing to help those who'll be helping in the post-hurricane clean-up and rebuilding effort.
"It only seemed natural to want to do something to help those in our community," he said. "It looks like there's going to be a lot of construction coming up."
Nighthawk, whose main distribution warehouse is located in Rosenburg — a northwest suburb of Houston — had to suspend business at that location for nearly a week after Harvey hit Houston but did not suffer any physical damages, Mr. Shaaban said.
He didn't elaborate on how Nighthawk will determine who gets the discount or how long it might be offered, saying it will be handled on a case-by-case basis.
He added that he and others employed at Nighthawk came through relatively unscathed, as well.
Nighthawk sources most of its products from manufacturing affiliates in the Far East, so it's also critical to the firm that the Port of Houston has reopened.
