PV and electronics equipment manufacturing and automation specialist Manz AG has said that a fire at its equipment manufacturing facility in Taiwan had caused some severe damage to parts of the building. 

Manz noted that the fire was deemed to have started from electrical cabling on Monday and was brought under control and extinguished quickly by the local fire department.

However, an area allocated to equipment for wet chemical production processes and for the semiconductor industry had suffered severe fire damage in parts, which would impact some customer’s orders.
