Re : Fire at Drake Equipment Arizona

This is to inform you that yesterday we experienced a 2 alarm fire at our main offices located at 2235 S. 19th Ave , Phoenix , Arizona . The fire destroyed our showroom and  first and second floor offices but apparently did not cause major damages to our manufacturing or installation facilities . We will not know for sure until the Fire Marshall allows us re-entry to the premises some time today .

Fortunately, no one from our staff was hurt!! At this time , we are waiting to regain access to the building and to more comprehensively assess the damages in order to establish our reactivation plan .

We anticipate to be back in operations shortly and encourage you to contact your sales associates for more specific information. I will continue providing guidance in the coming days and we thank you for your support and patronage.

Stay Safe and Healthy ,

Angel Herrera
