Fire at Lignums factory of Latvijas Finieris

06. february, 2012

Management of Latvijas Finieris expresses gratitude to the State Fire and Rescue Service for immediate reaction, professionally localising and eliminating fire at Lignums factory, which broke out as a result of igniting thermo-oil at the pumping station. Company management also thanks employees for steadiness and cooperation partners for situational awareness, support and action.

Mr. Uldis Bikis, Chairman of Board of Latvijas Finieris, informs on the current situation: „Heat supply and other infrastructure is provided throughout the plant, some parts of production are working and some are gradually being restored, we expect to achieve full business volumes within a week. The cause of the fire and associated losses are currently being evaluated by experts. As Latvijas Finieris operates several factories, no significant impact on production volumes are expected, maybe just small changes in delivery times, which will be coordinated with clients.”
