KPMG protects jobs at boot maker with sale

Sale should preserve livelihood of all remaining employees

Joint administrators from KPMG have completed the sale of Hunter Rubber
Company to a consortium of buyers, who plan to continue the manufacture of the
famous Hunter rubber boots in Dumfries.

Richard Fleming, Howard Smith and Blair Nimmo from KPMG’s restructuring
practice look to have ensured that all the remaining 64 employees keep their
jobs following the business being successfully transferred to the new owner, a
consortium comprising Jonathan Marland, Peter Mullen, Julian Taylor and Pentland
Group plc on Friday (April 28) last week.

Blair Nimmo said: ‘We are pleased to have completed a sale of the business
and assets of the Hunter Rubber Company. This represents a good result for the
employees as well the company’s creditors and is expected to mean the production
of the famous Hunter boots will continue in Dumfries.’
