Loss adjuster appointed to fire in midlands packaging plant

Loss adjuster GAB Robins UK has been appointed to handle the claims following a major fire at the Skymark packaging plant in Leominster near Hereford.

The fire started in the early hours of Wednesday 17th June causing over £10m of damage.

The plant’s use of inks, solvents and other flammable materials, and the noxious smoke produced by burning plastics resulted in the local authority setting up a 400 metre cordon around the factory, with local residents being evacuated.

Over 75 firefighters from neighbouring counties tackled the blaze using new foam technology and they remained on site after the fire had been put out to keep it damped down.

GAB Robins loss management team comprises Sam Boley, major and complex loss director; Susan Willmott, major and complex loss; Steven Nock, chartered accountant and Kevin Dinsdale, chartered surveyor.
