BUCHAREST (Romania), September 3 (SeeNews) - Greek commercial refrigeration and glass packaging solutions manufacturer Frigoglass said on Friday that it has received a 15 million euro ($17.8 million) advance insurance payment after a fire broke out at its refrigeration plant in Timisoara, in western Romania.
The total insurance indemnification related to the property damage and business interruption caused by the fire is under assessment by the insurance companies, Frigoglass said in a press release.
In June, Frigoglass said that it had to stop production at its beverage coolers plant in Timisoara due to a fire.

The company has been present in Romania since 1994 and employs 1,042 at the non-domestic cooling and ventilation equipment plant in Timisoara, according to data posted on the Romanian finance ministry's website.
