“We remain focused on doing all we can to preserve as many jobs as possible.

 

“All affected staff have been informed and will be paid up to and including their last day of employment. We’d like to thank all employees for the support, service and co-operation they have provided to the company, both before and during the administration.

 

“There has been a strong response from the market and we encourage any further interested parties to make contact as soon as possible.”

 

The joint administrators were calling for offers to be made by 5pm on Wednesday March 28. Interested parties should contact Gareth Shaw on 0121 232 3288.
