Fears for Normandy

SeptNewsParkNormandyMobile home manufacturer enter administration

Normandy Homes has been placed in administration threatening up to 25 jobs in Hull. Nineteen staff have already been made redundant.

Joint administrators Andrew Mackenzie and Bob Maxwell, of Begbies Traynor, were appointed on 13 July by the directors.

Normandy has seen a slump in export orders and a disruption to its supply chain since 2011leading to a 40 per cent drop in sales.

Mr Mackenzie said, ‘The business has a skilled workforce, some great products and a strong brand within the market, and we have confidence that we will be able to secure a trade buyer.

‘We are actively marketing the business for sale, however the reality of the situation is that further redundancies are inevitable as the business can’t pay the wages at present. Our focus now is to recover as much of the creditors’ funds as we can, as well as ensuring as many of the workforce remain employed.’

The firm operates from 40,000 sq ft of freehold and leasehold manufacturing sites in Bontoft Avenue, Hull.
