Kia Motors

Survive-A-Storm Shelters pioneered the design and construction of underground commerical storm shelters. When Kia Motors needed several commerical storm shelters to protect the workers at one of their automotive plants, they called Survive-A-Storm Shelters.

Never before had any company attempted such an ambitious project, but Kia was impressed by our track record of success in completing difficult and highly complex projects. The end result? Survive-A-Storm Shelters installed what was, at the time, the largest capacity of underground community storm shelters on a single piece of property anywhere in the world.
