(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) It was a weekend like no other for Super International as a fast spreading fire engulfed its Super Plastic Factory, Super Optical Media CD Factory and Plastic Warehouse located in the Ghala Industrial area. The fire began at around 1.30am on a Friday at a supermarket warehouse located in the same compound and quickly spread to the CD and plastic factories.


The watchman on duty sounded the alarm and by 2am, the Omani firefighting team was at spot, working hard to douse the flames. Employees of Super Group watched helplessly as the fire destroyed decades of work and investment of the international business conglomerate, a premium manufacturer of plastics and compact discs in the sultanate. ''As I watched the fire raging, my immediate concern was for the members of the firefighting team working amidst the smoke and emissions from the burning factories. ''As many as 25 fire engines and water tankers worked tirelessly for 15 hours to control the blaze and prevent further spread of the fire.


''Exact losses cannot be determined as of now but we estimate it to be around RO6mn. Accidents do happen and we are taking it as a key learning process. Thankflly, there were no injuries, and no lives were lost,'' said Jasmine Kalwani, managing director, Super Plastics. Super Optical Media owned and managed the only compact disc manufacturing facility in Oman.


The factory unit was capable of manufacturing CDROMs, VCDs and DVDs. Super Plastics was a premier plastic manufacturer of plastic injection molding, blow molding and extrusion, manufacturing various industrial and consumer products. The company has made an appeal to its customers, suppliers and the government to cooperate with them during this difficult time.


The accident has disrupted the extensive distribution network in Nizwa, Sur, Sohar, Ibri, Haima, Salalah and hundreds of small businesses who depended on Super Plastics supplies to redistribute to the people of the sultanate. ''Our focus now is to work in close coordination with the government of Oman to start afresh. We are investors in Oman “ we know how important businesses are for the community by and large.


''It is a big loss but we believe that we have an expertise in the field of high technology optical media products and plastic manufacturing and we will move forward from here,'' added Jas
