Wednesday night we have been confronted with a considerable but contained fire at our Waregem office.
The fire started in the quality control department and thanks to the fast action of our team and the local fire brigade the problem was quickly under control. Nobody got hurt during the incident and the damage to the building is limited to mainly smoke and dust. However, a considerable batch of Willow that was ready for shipment has been close to the fire and might be severely damaged due to heat and dust. We will personally inform the customers whose shipment has been affected.
We want to thank all those involved in stopping the fire from doing more severe damage.
It’s a setback, but with the force on our side, we will rise from this, stronger and smarter.
