Yesterday a major fire in Leeds engulfed Tradpak’s yard and some of its processing areas. Damage was extensive but no one was injured and the firm’s offices and some processing facilities were undamaged. The blaze was quickly controlled on Tradpak’s site but unfortunately their immediate neighbours a packaging company contained large quantities of cardboard, polythene and gas oil and their fire proved much more difficult to control and is still burning today.
Early indications from the investigating officers suggest that the fire started whilst the site was being burgled and the area is being treated as a crime scene, further complicating recovery and firefighting efforts. The clean-up operation starts today. Owner David Roebuck thanked the Fire Services and Environment Agency for their magnificent efforts in mitigating the impact of the fire.
Immediate arrangements are being put in place to provide continuity of service for all customers and Kevan Underhill, Managing Director, thanked customers and suppliers for their support and patience given the challenging circumstances.
The Tradpak team’s priority will as always be to provide a quality service and every effort will be made to resume normal business as soon as possible. Further updates will be posted in the coming days. If any customer has any concerns or questions please ring our office on 01132468086
