MF&H Textiles is Taylor County’s largest single-point private employer with nearly 50 employees. Its 19-acre campus between Columbus and Macon was dead in the path of Hurricane Irma on September 11, 2017.
Irma’s gale force winds damaged the roof surface of MF&H’s main production facility. “Irma ripped off 20 percent of the synthetic roofing membrane (EPDM), exposing the insulation to torrential rain,” said Bob Wade, MF&H’s chief financial officer.
在他寻求联邦救灾援助，韦德联络FEMA和SBA。 SBA指示他，以纪念在UGA的澳门手机赌博卢波。 “标记出来到工厂马上和我们所赋予的。”
President Trump had issued a disaster declaration for central and southern Georgia counties affected by Hurricane Irma. However, Wade discovered the disaster assistance emergency loans were not applicable to inland counties. Lupo advised Wade to register MF&H on the FEMA website, despite what he’d learned. “Any company affected by a disaster must be registered to validate its damage and promote the fact there is sufficient damage for the county to be declared a disaster area,” said Lupo.
By November, Lupo had coordinated on-site meetings at MF&H with Rick Martin of the UGA SBDC International Trade Division, Derek Woodham of Georgia Tech’s Manufacturing Extension Program and Kerry Barnett, 国际贸易 Manager for the Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDECD). They helped Wade explore additional international resources and opportunities for MF&H’s unique commission-dyed mineral and flame-retardant treated industrial weight cotton fabrics.
“We were looking at ways to boost revenue,” said Lupo. “If MF&H wasn’t able to get the loan through a disaster declaration, an increase in international trade could create the cash flow they needed to take care of the roof repairs.” Wade also contacted Senator David Purdue’s office.

By December, MF&H’s application had been accepted, reviewed and approved. The loan closed in early 2018. MF&H continues to review opportunities with Georgia Tech and the GDECD’s 国际贸易 Division.
