British Ceramic Tile falls into administration

Devon-based ceramic tile manufacturer British Ceramic Tile has fallen into administration, resulting in the loss of more than 300 jobs.

The business has ceased trading with immediate effect after losing a key customer contract.

313 members of staff have been made redundant, with 67 employees remaining on board to wind the business down.

Joint administrator Andrew Sheridan of FRP Advisory has urged “any parties” interested in acquiring the business to get in touch.

“British Ceramic Tile Limited is a leading player in the manufacturer of ceramic tiles, with a long-standing heritage in the local communities in which it operates and a stellar reputation for its quality products,” he said.

"Unfortunately, challenging trading conditions and the termination of a key customer contract in recent days have forced the business to enter administration and cease trading with immediate effect.”
