Park Place Technologies Preparing Resources to Serve Clients in Path of Polar Vortex

CLEVELAND, OH, January 30 — Park Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to serve clients who may be impacted by the record cold temperatures and wind chills of the midweek Polar Vortex.

According to the Weather Channel, “Extreme arctic cold is now plunging into the Midwest, dropping temperatures in some cities to their lowest levels in more than two decades. By Wednesday and Thursday, morning lows may reach the minus 20s to perhaps minus 30 in the Twin Cities, with minus teens and minus 20s in Des Moines, Iowa, Chicago and Milwaukee. Subzero-cold lows may extend through much of the Ohio Valley and should arrive into the interior Northeast by Thursday. Thursday will be the coldest day along the Northeast Interstate 95 corridor, with lows in the single digits from Baltimore to Boston.”

Park Place has set up a Command Center in Marlboro, Mass., that is ready to deploy whatever resources clients need. Clients will have immediate access to our supply chain, tech support, field team and suppliers. Our entire field team is on “high alert” and will be ready to deploy in the areas most impacted.

Park Place has been reaching out to critical end-users such as hospitals to ensure they are ready to engage us if they are hit hard.

Park Place has identified customers who could be impacted and has moved additional material into the potential impacted regions. Field Engineers are planning for the worst and hoping for the best.  We are also putting our complete Staff on high alert making sure they are ready to deploy.
