According to the Peterborough Telegraph, the closure of the company will result in the loss of 100 jobs.
Premier have issued a statement confirming that a skeleton staff will remain in place for the time being to handle the individual requirements of each customer, but have requested that anyone dealing with the company be patient with their requests at this difficult time.
Iain Forsythe, founder and managing director of the company since 1992, told the Peterborough Telegraph: “After 27 years, for this to happen is devastating. We are not the only ones to have been hit like this. We have seen many household names fall by the wayside, but it still hurts.
“We have taken advice from suppliers and credit card companies and will be working now to do all we can to make sure that our customers are all spoken to and are OK.
“We have given it everything we can to try to continue but in the end it has not been possible. We are all devastated.”
