Military supplier wound-up
A large supplier of robust computing products, which is involved in the implementation of the UK armed forces new communication system, has gone into liquidation.
Blazepoint Group Plc, an AIM-listed group, appointed insolvency practitioners Hacker Young & Partners to oversee the winding-up process.
The principal trading subsidiary of the group, Blazepoint Ltd, has been sold to a former shareholder as a going concern in the hope that between 30 and 40 manufacturing jobs will be saved.
The company recently won a multi-million pound contract to supply ruggedised laser printers to the UK military as part of the Bowman project to overhaul communication systems. The contract will stay with Blazepoint Ltd. Bowman is expected to go into service in March next year.
