We are back at work, but the fires in California continue to rage. We want to take a moment to recognize and express our gratitude to all of the responders who have been working tirelessly to battle the wild fires and protect our communities. They are working around the clock and will continue to do so until the job is done. From all of us at Griplock Systems – Thank you.
UPDATE 12/11/17: Griplock Systems is Open.
The fires continue to rage in California, but luckily our facility remained untouched. Our office is open and ready to take orders. Our Sales and Customer Service Departments will be replying to emails and RFQs as soon as possible. Parts are being moved back into the warehouse and we anticipate being able to start shipping again tomorrow. Back orders will be the first to start shipping out. We ask for your patience as we get operations back to normal. Thank you.
UPDATE 12/8/17: Griplock Systems remains closed today due to heavy smoke and ash from the fires in southern California.
Heavy smoke and ash from the fires are currently producing an unsafe working environment at our office and warehouse. We are hopeful of a clearing off today and over the weekend, allowing us to get back to work Monday. A number of staff live in evacuation areas, however everyone is safe. If all goes well over the weekend, we will be back in the office Monday and will be able to start shipping orders early next week.
UPDATE 12/7/17: Griplock Systems is still closed today due to the fires in southern California.
Fires continue to rage in Southern California. Yesterday, Griplock employees loaded semi-trucks with equipment and parts from the warehouse and evacuated the area. Griplock Systems will remain closed today. Stay tuned for more information.

CARPINTERIA, DECEMBER 6, 2017 – Griplock Sytems’ employees are being told to evacuate the area for safety. There will be no one in the office to take orders and no shipments will be going out. It is likely we will be closed tomorrow, 12/7/17 also. We will keep you updated on our return. We hope to be back to work as soon as possible.
We hope this doesn’t inconvenience your business too much, but we ask you to keep your thoughts and prayers on our staff and all those affected by these fires.
CARPINTERIA, DECEMBER 5, 2017 – While thousands are being evacuated near Ventura and Santa Paula, we at Griplock Systems want our customers to know that our employees and company are safe and will continue normal operations.
There have been several power outages, which affect phone and internet capabilities, last night and this morning, but for now we are fully operational – orders are being processed and shipments are going out. If you attempt to contact us and can’t get through, we may be experiencing another power outage. If this happens, please be patient with us and try again at a later time. We expect this situation to last at least throughout the week.
