Its’ business as normal after the fire in the wood processing building

Posted on 20/02/18

We can not praise the fire crews enough in fact Kevin Robotham-Company Director commented that they did a “Splendid job” at containing the blaze that erupted in the waste recycling warehouse on Saturday night.

Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service said that at the height of the blaze, 10 fire engines from across the county were on the scene as well as 60 firefighters.

The most important thing to take away from this is that there were no injuries and no fatalities to any of our staff, contractors or fire crews.

We have suffered a lot of damage to some of the processing equipment, including shredding machinery and three lorries, which will be at a fairly substantial financial cost to the company.

Alister Wait – Director chaired a crisis operational meeting on Sunday morning and invoked the disaster recovery plan, which had the company operating as normally as possible on Monday morning.
