The president of Schirm USA, a chemical facility in Ennis, issued a statement today seeking to ease any fears the community has in the aftermath of the explosion Wednesday in West.
“After the devastating explosion at the West, Texas, fertilizer plant, I wanted to clarify to the Ennis community that Schirm USA Inc. does not, nor has ever stored, manufactured or shipped the fertilizers in question that are attributed to this terrible event (ammonia, ammonium nitrate),” said H. Gus Jones, president and CEO of Schirm.
The facility produces home and garden products, as well as products for agricultural use.
