Huge Fire Destroys Europe’s Biggest Ski Factory

14th October 2020

The Fischer ski factory in the Ukraine has been severely damaged in a blaze. Its cause is unknown and an investigation is underway. NEW

It occupies a 20-hectare site and firefighters were called in the early hours of Monday morning.

It took them three hours to bring the blaze in the one-story building under control and they prevented it spreading to the main warehouse.

According to the The State Emergency Service (SES) of Ukraine the blaze began in the roof of a production shop.

No-one was injured.

The Austrian manufacturer, Fischer, produces 60% of its skis from the factory and the plant also makes skis for Scott, Stöckli, Tecno Pro, Hagan, Rossignol, Alpina, Splitkein and  Tecno.

It produces other sporting goods including hockey sticks and running shoes.

Around 1,000 people were employed at the factory.

It was the biggest in Europe producing hundreds of thousands of skis and snowboards.

The factory is located in the Ukranian town of Mukachevo in the Zakarpattia region.

The factory began in 1944 with Fischer becoming involved in the 1980s.

It began making skis in that part of Ukraine as skis were originally made from wood and the area is covered by dense forests.

More recently it has been used as production costs are cheaper than western Europe with transportation and export relatively simple.

An investigation into the fire is underway.

We will update this story as we receive more information
