ATLANTA, Sept. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chart Industries, Inc. ("Chart") (Nasdaq:GTLS) has three locations in the greater Houston, Texas area, and this communication is meant to provide a status on our employees' well-being and our operations in that area. 

Our Energy & Chemicals ("E&C") segment office headquarters is located in The Woodlands, Texas, and one of our E&C Hetsco service locations is located in Houston.  Neither had any facility impact from the storms.  Our Distribution & Storage ("D&S") segment has a service and repair facility in Houston, Texas as well, and that facility also did not suffer any damage. 

In addition to the Chart facilities, Hudson Products Corporation ("Hudson") for which Chart signed a definitive agreement to acquire on June 30, 2017 pending successful completion of customary closing procedures, is headquartered in Beasley, Texas.  Hudson has told us that they have not had water enter the facility, and all offices, shops and equipment are operating in good working order.  

However, residential neighborhoods remain closed or are only now starting to recover from significant flooding.  This is impacting many of the Chart and Hudson employees who are engaged in recovery efforts at their homes and those of neighbors and family members.  Both Chart and Hudson are working closely with their respective suppliers and customers to effectively meet our quality and customer service levels.

We have many instances of our employees going above and beyond to rescue, assist and help their colleagues and communities.  We are proud of our employees who worked together throughout the last week to help each others' as well as the greater communities' families. 

Chart has established a fund to assist impacted employees in their immediate and long-term needs.  We have donated $25,000 with no requirement to match.  For information on how to donate, please contact:
