GOLDFIELD ANNOUNCES STORM RESTORATION EFFORTS IN FLORIDA
MELBOURNE, Florida, September 14, 2017 - The Goldfield Corporation (NYSE American: GV), a leading provider of electrical construction services for the utility industry and industrial customers through its subsidiaries, Power Corporation of America, C and C Power Line, Inc. and Southeast Power Corporation, with operations primarily in the Southeast and mid-Atlantic regions of the United States and Texas, today announced substantially all of its power line construction personnel and related equipment from its Florida and Texas operations are committed to storm restoration work in Florida as a result of Hurricane Irma.
Although the Company is providing restoration services to most of the major utilities in Florida affected by the hurricane, it is too early to determine the duration of the Company’s participation in the restoration efforts or to assess the financial impact on its operations. The utilities for which Goldfield is providing these services are still assessing their storm damage. Additionally, these utility customers can discontinue the Company’s involvement in the recovery work at any time. As soon as they are released from such restoration service, the Company’s crews will return to previously awarded projects.
President and Chief Executive Officer John H. Sottile said, “We are pleased to have the people and the resources available to assist our customers in restoring electricity in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma. We were able to deploy our crews to storm-damaged areas quickly. Our crews are seasoned veterans, having worked in numerous storm restoration efforts.”
