Deloitte partners act as joint administrators at Edinburgh Crystal Glass

Administrators from Deloitte have been appointed at Edinburgh Crystal Glass.

John Reid and Ian Brown are acting as joint administrators to the glassmaking
company, based in Penicuik.

A lack of consumer demand and a failure to sell the business led to the
appointments, said Reid.

The company employs 420 staff across the country in 14 factory outlets and 77
department stores.

Subsidiaries Caithness Glass Company Limited and Selkirk Glass Limited are
continuing to trade.
