MikroTik back to taking orders following warehouse fire

The Mikrotīkls (known abroad as MikroTik) IT company has resumed taking and shipping orders after a fire consumed one of its warehouses earlier this week, the company said.

In addition, the company plans to return to full capacity as soon as possible.

The fire slowed down order processing at the company, with the remaining warehouses overtaking the task.

The company's new warehouse at Stopiņi Municipality was opened in July but has not become fully operational. MikroTik have allocated extra resources so that the building starts work at full capacity within the next few months.

MikroTik also said that they would rebuild the burned down warehouse in Rīga's Rumbula neighborhood, seeing as it's a strategic asset to the company. 

Board member Arnis Riekstiņš takes an optimistic tone over the future: "We're doing everything we can to get back on our feet quickly. As we've recently completed a new warehouse, we are working to start operations on these premises as well so that the company's operations are back to the necessary capacity," he said.

On August 20 one of MikroTik's warehouses burned down. A chief exporter and a big contributor to the economy -- as well as donor to science and medicine -- MikroTik posted a profit of €43 million last year.
