Memphis, Tenn., December 1, 2011 – ServiceMaster Recovery Management (SRM), the commercial large loss division of ServiceMaster Co., is actively serving its international commercial clients in response to the historic flooding in Thailand. Flooding in Thailand has claimed over 500 lives since late July and affected more than 1,000 factories in industrial provinces north of the capital of Bangkok, disrupting the supply chains of many international companies.
While determining the true cost of the floods could take years, insured losses could be in the billions of dollars. SRM deployed preliminary recovery teams to the area three weeks ago and is initiating the restoration process as flood waters recede.
