PwC secures sale of part of rental clothing business

200 jobs saved in the process

Administrators from PricewaterhouseCoopers have found a buyer for one part of
Brooks Service Group, the national
provider of linen and work wear rental services to the hotel, hospitality and
food industries.

They have secured the sale of the work wear part of the business to
Sunlight Service Group safeguarding
some 200 jobs. They will now continue to trade the linen business as a going
concern whilst they seek a buyer. There are no redundancies at this stage.

Derek Howell, Colin Haig and Rob Lewis of PwC were appointed joint
administrators of Brooks and its subsidiary companies, including County Luxdon
in Sunderland, and Shaws Laundries at Gravesend, on 13 February 2007.

The administration follows a decrease in the value of the workstream.

Brooks operates from nine sites throughout the UK and employs approximately
1300 staff.
