Energetic event damages ATK building in Lewiston | Business
A "small energetic event" took place Saturday morning at approximately 7:30 a.m. in ATK's primer mixing process at the Southport facility in Lewiston. There were no injuries, but there was damage to the building.
"The event occurred during a remote operation in a specially designed building, and subsequently there were no injuries as design and safety devices worked as designed. Safety remains our first priority and the ATK Joint Energetic Council will be on site Monday to conduct a root cause and corrective action investigation. Although we do not expect this to significantly affect production, production in the affected area will not resume until a thorough safety investigation is complete."
