Updated information about the tragic accident at Multifabs Ltd.

The search for survivors of the tragic accident at Multifabs Ltd on Monday has now ended. 13 people have lost their lives and many are injured. This tragic accident has affected us all and our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the affected families.

Local Government, Ministry of Labour and the Bangladesh Accord are still investigating the reason of the boiler explosion and so far it looks like it´s a terrible accident that has occurred. Recent inspections made both by BSCI and the Bangladesh Accord concerning the boilers location and its surroundings showed no issues.

We will of course continue to monitor the situation and have a close dialogue with Multifabs Ltd to support them in any way we can.
