Hurricane Update – September 18, 2017

Following Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, Kraton has resumed normal operations in all of our plant, research and corporate locations. I continue to express our appreciation to our colleagues, customers, suppliers, shareholders and stakeholders around the world who expressed concern for our employees throughout both of these major storms.

Thankfully, not only did our operations sustain very little impact, but all of our employees are safe, though some are still dealing with the storms’ aftermath. We continue to work with our employees, who were personally affected by the storms, as well as our communities. Kraton and its employees have already donated more than $75,000 to hurricane relief efforts.

We take our role as a global supplier seriously and have worked to minimize impact to our customers. As always, do not hesitate to reach out to your normal Kraton business contact, should you have any questions.

We appreciate your partnership and trust in Kraton.

Thank you,

Kevin M. Fogarty,
President and CEO
