It was reported that there was no loss of life and most of the appliance production area remained safe. The assets that were damaged by fire were adequately insured and a survey of the accurate extent of the damage is being carried out by the company.

According to the company, the production of the refrigerators is expected to resume in a few weeks time while that of deep freezers is expected to resume earlier. The supplies to the market are not expected to be substantially affected.

Production facilities of air-conditioners, microwave ovens and washing machines remained unaffected and are continuing un-interruptedly.

Waves owns over 70% of the local market share for Deep Freezers and also has a decent market share for other products like Refrigerators, Air Conditioners, Microwaves and Washing Machines.

    Simply shows poor standard of fire fighting system or may be total absence.
    If adequate fire monitoring and fighting system was working nothing to this scale should have happened.
    A very common practice in such small factories to save money.

    So called Shobaz is fully responsible of not implementing industrial codes in his administered area.
