Supplier firm Innovation Line (asi/62660) suffered a fire on Saturday morning at one of its facilities. The Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) was alerted to a blaze at Innovation Line’s Culver City, CA, office on Teale St. at 7:25 on Saturday morning. While it took firefighters about two hours to knock down the fire, there were no reported injuries.
In a note today, Innovation Line said it “operates in four buildings and only one was partially damaged by fire. Our customer service team will be contacting affected distributors shortly.” The supplier also said that its phone system is temporarily operating on a limited basis, so it asks distributors to contact the company through a variety of email addresses: For in house orders: Lanieta@innovation-line.com; quotes, pricing or production: Antonia@innovation-line.com; accounting: Ana@innovation-line.com; all other information or inquiries: Info@innovation-line.com. The company also asks distributors to check its website at www.innovation-line.com for inventory availability prior to placing a new order.
In the company’s note, Innovation Line President Eddie Blau said the company was the apparent victim of arson. The LAFD website reported that the LAFD Arson Section is currently investigating the fire cause and the estimated dollar loss is being tabulated.
Despite the damage Blau said he expects the company to get its operations back to normal as quickly as possible. “We are very happy to advise there were no casualties and with the help of our loyal customers and dedicated staff, we are confident operations will swiftly return to normal,” said Blau. “We appreciate our customers’ understanding during this difficult time as we rebuild our production operations.”
