More than 200 jobs lost at J Rotherham Masonry
An administrator told the BBC that the company was unable to meet financial obligations
The BBC have reported that more than 200 people have lost their jobs at the East Yorkshire stonemasons, J Rotherham Masonry.
According to administrator KPMG, the company, which makes kitchen worktops, had been ‘unable to meet financial obligations,' and 205 workers - from the company's head office in Holme-on-Spalding-Moor and at its manufacturing site in Market Weighton - have been made redundant.
Howard Smith from KPMG told the BBC that J Rotherham Masonry is ‘highly regarded by its peers and customers,’ and commented that administrators were ‘actively discussing the future of the business with a number of interested parties’.
It is hoped that a positive outcome will be secured and the business will be maintained in the area. For now 25, staff have been retained to help the administrators as they seek a buyer for the business.
