A MIDDLE-AGED man has died after falling four storeys onto scaffolding at a factory in an Ipswich industrial estate.

The man fell yesterday afternoon at Hume Masterpanel in Citiswich Business Park on Ashburn Rd at Bundamba.

Police and Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics were called to the factory after the incident about 2.20pm.

Paramedics worked on the man, but he could not be saved. A police spokesman said the man was in his 40s or 50s.

Queensland Fire and Rescue Service officers were also called out.

Workplace Health and Safety will investigate and a report will be prepared for the coroner.

A spokeswoman for the company said it had no comment to make as the incident was being investigated.

Hume Masterpanel, which makes moulded door skins, was one of the first tenants at Citiswich Business Park.

It is part of a family-owned Australian group established in 1953 that now has factories and warehouses throughout Australia and New Zealand.

Hume Masterpanel supplies domestic and international manufacturers and distributors.
