Three days before Christmas, the fire brigade was called to out to a warehouse fire in Melbourne’s western suburbs, where some of Chemtura’s pool and spa water maintenance products were stored.
The fire was quickly brought under control and was contained to one section of the warehouse. There were no injuries. The company advises that impact on supply to customers in that region has been minimal, as the only products damaged in the fire were bulk finished goods surplus to immediate requirements.
Chemtura has expressed its appreciation to those suppliers who offered assistance. The clean up is now complete and a full assessment of the cause is being investigated and will be advised shortly.
