Chairman of the Wisynco Group Limited, William Mahfood, says distribution of its products should be back to normal in another six weeks following last week’s fire.

On Thursday, fire destroyed Wysinco's Lakes Pen distribution centre in St Catherine.

Firefighters were not able to put out the blaze until the following afternoon.

The warehouse was primarily used as a storage area for beverages made by the company.

Mahfood says Wisynco has already identified some temporary warehouses to be used until it can rebuild.

However, he notes that it will be challenging operating from multiple locations.
