Fire breaks out at ATA IMS’s factory

PETALING JAYA: ATA IMS Bhd, formerly Denko Industrial Corp Bhd, said a fire had occurred at one of the group’s rented factories in Taman Gembira, Tampoi, Johor Baru, last Friday.

The premise is occupied by ATA Industrial (M) Sdn Bhd. It said the Fire and Rescue Department arrived promptly and brought the fire under control shortly thereafter.

“The fire affected only a small part of a storage room in the secondary process area. The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Fire and Rescue Department. The company shall restore back the operations at the affected area as soon as possible,“ ATA IMS said in a stock exchange filing today.

The electronics manufacturing service provider added that a police report has been filed, and the company and adjusters are currently assessing the value of the damages sustained by the fire. All assets and inventory are adequately insured.

“The company does not anticipate any major impact to its operations as the fire only happened in one small section of the factory and the company has similar secondary processes in other operating factories.”

It said an additional announcement will be made once the exact value of the actual losses has been determined.
