The owner of the business hopes to rebuild the factory as soon as possible and continue with his business.

For more than a week, these workers were unsure about their future after the United Pacific’s Makoi based factory was completely destroyed in fire.

However today they were a sigh of relief among them after the owner assured them that no jobs will be lost.

“We are very happy that our boss has assured us that no jobs will be lost. We don’t want to lose our job,” said an employee, Shakuntla Devi.

The cost of damage is estimated to be in millions of dollars.

The owner of the business hopes to start rebuilding as soon as possible.

“We are now looking at improving our facility with much better and modern state of the art machines which will give better productivity and will be better for the country,” said Kamal Khalil, the Owner.

Its more than a week since the factory was destroyed by fire. The company is still waiting for any reports in terms of cause of fire.

Khalil hopes the sooner authorities give him a report, the sooner he can start rebuilding his business.

“As far as our export goes, I have no time to waste. I have to be back in business in shortest time possible so that our export business is not lost”

“I am just worried since the authorities are not giving us green light at the moment. All of us depend on this company and if the authorities can please speed up the investigation so we can get to rebuild the company,” said an employee, Sulueti Camaivuna.

The company has been in operation for 32 years and major export market is PNG.
