Print firm Dobson & Crowther enters administration: Dobson & Crowther has entered administration, with redundancies resulting for two-thirds of the specialist printing firm’s staff.
Baker Tilly have been appointed as administrators, and say that the remaining 24 staff will stay to honour existing orders, in the hope that the business will be bought.
The Wrexham firm lost its largest customer 18 months ago, before its main supplier, Paperlinx, ran into difficulties in March. Funding for their new purpose-built site became untenable, and debt mounted.
A statement from Baker Tilly read: “The company has recently incurred losses and to address these it has been necessary for the administrators to take the difficult decision to make 55 redundancies.
“Baker Tilly will now work with the former employees and relevant government departments to ensure that the former staff receive their entitlements from the National Insurance Fund.”
