    Bummer at Weber!

    No injuries after accident, roof collapse at Weber facility in Huntley

    A Friday morning construction accident at the new Weber-Stephen Products global distribution center caused a big part of the roof to collapse, but no injuries
    A concrete truck pouring the floor inside the 750,120-square-foot facility being built on Freeman Road just east of Huntley Outlet Mall hit a support pillar, causing a 200-by-500-foot section of the roof to collapse just before noon, according to the Huntley Fire Protection District. None of the 50 or so workers in the building at the time were injured in the collapse, and made it to safety.

        wow that is sad, negligence is usually the cause of job site injuries. I see it often sadly in the commercial/industrial construction trade. I am glad the only thing hurt was the structure as it CAN be rebuilt. wonder if this will impact production??

            My guess is no, says it's a global distribution center so I'm thinking it's intended to be more of a warehouse.

              It a distribution center. I bet they will keep on shipping. You cant keep the awesomeness of Weber down [hehehe] I have to think its kind of a slow time for them and their just ramping up stock for spring.

                Fortunately, no inventory was lost, either!

                  Phew! It'd have been a real tragedy if it had destroyed their copper paint supply.

                    Life without a copper Weber....kinda painful to picture a life with a void such as that.
