April 23, 2013 - Grandview, MO - Whenever the phone rings before 6:00 am, it's usually not a good thing. PRIER Products' CEO Joe Poskin received such a call on February 27th - PRIER's Distribution Center roof had collapsed under the weight of more than 24 inches of snow! The fortunate part of this disaster was that it happened in the middle of the night when no one was working so there were no injuries. Had the roof collapsed at 3:00 in the afternoon, damages would have been significantly different and a small catastrophe might have been a dreadful tragedy.
