RESCO Meets the Challenges of Strong April Blizzard in the Dakotas, Eastern Montana

July 17, 2022

A huge ‘thank you’ to our warehouse team in Williston, ND, who continue to work tirelessly following the powerful blizzard that struck western North Dakota, northwestern South Dakota, and eastern Montana April 22-24, resulting in downed utility poles and power lines.

The Williston team—Skye Velenchenko and Chad Six—along with help from John Larson and Greg Schaefer from our Moorhead location—has moved 370,000 pieces of material (thus far) out of the warehouse and are playing an important role in helping our members restore power to their customers.

A big shout-out also goes to our Purchasing Department—Lori Knoebel, Dillon Marchese, and Kevin Salmon—who have done an incredible job of keeping up with material for the warehouse, expediting orders, tracking down shipments, and placing warehouse transfers. Great job, everyone!

Chris Pederson, regional vice president, spoke with KX News in Bismarck/Minot, ND, about RESCO’s response to the storm. Watch the video here.
