Kryger Glass has re-opened its operations in Joplin, Mo., after its distribution center there was destroyed by a tornado on May 22.

The company had re-located its Joplin operations and employees to Kansas City, Mo., over the last six weeks, according to a company statement, but has now re-opened a temporary facility in Joplin at 510 N. Tyler Avenue.

“Plans for rebuilding at our previous site are in the process,” says company president Bill Kryger. “We thank our customers for remaining loyal during this period of transition.”
