Polaroid UK enters administration

The UK branch of Polaroid has entered into administration.

Partners from Zolfo Cooper were appointed at the Hertfordshire-based company
that acted as a small-scale distributor of digital imaging and electronics
products under license from Polaroid Corporation.

Customers are being serviced by Polaroid Europe, a separate trading entity
not in administration.

‘Customers of the business in the UK continue to be serviced by Polaroid
Europe, a separate trading entity, which is operating as normal and is not in
administration, therefore, Polaroid business, sales and services will continue
as normal,’ said a statement from Polaroid Europe.

Polaroid UK has ceased all trading activities, and administrators are working
to realize the company’s assets and effect a distribution to creditors.

The administrators are Alastair Beveridge, Neil Cooper and Stuart Mackellar.

Polaroid was incorporated in the UK in 1962.
