Tyler Pipe Responds to Times Article

An article in yesterday's New York Times blasted Tyler Pipe, and it's parent company, McWane Inc. for massive safety problems. It highlighted some of the deaths and serious injuries at the plant.

Thursday, the company responded.

In a written statement, Tyler Pipe said:

"The story printed by The New York Times blatantly distorts the company's history and operations..."

"The Times did not report on the current favorable conditions at Tyler Pipe."

Also, Tyler Pipe said it has recently completed "it's 58th consecutive day of operation without a lost time incident."
