In response to the series of tornadoes that hit southern Indiana on March 2, Stens Corp. sent a Relief Team to Scottsburg and Henryville, Ind., with a Franzen Chain Sharpening Machine in tow, allowing them to offer free chain sharpening to anyone needing the service in devastated areas.
Henryville was hit by two tornados, one of which was an EF4 with winds up to 175 miles per hour. Stens employees Chris Roos and Ryan Schwartz volunteered to assist Scott’s Hardware, located in Scottsburg, with post-storm clean-up. The team spent a full day in Scottsburg, which suffered hail damage, then spent a second full day in Henryville offering the chain sharpening service to local volunteers helping to clean up the region.
Jasper, Ind.-based Stens Corp. supplies replacement parts and accessories to more than 50,000 customers worldwide through its U.S. and international distribution network. It is a subsidiary of Ariens Co., a manufacturer of premier lawn and garden equipment.
