KPMG administrators close Pilkington's Swinton factory

KPMG's Paul Flint and Brian Green the joint administrators to Pilkington's make 204 redundancies

Administrators from KPMG made 204 staff redundant at collapsed tile and
flooring business Pilkington’s.

Paul Flint and Brian Green from KPMG restructuring in Manchester have been
joint administrators to Pilkington’s Group, as well as Pilkington’s Tiles
(Ireland), Pilkington’s Tiles, and Quiligotti Access Flooring since 14 June.

All 204 redundancies were from the Swinton factory which now has 139
employees remaining.

Flint, restructuring associate partner at KPMG, said: “Unfortunately, on
assessing the demand for the company’s products, it has been necessary to make
204 staff redundant.

“We continue to work hard on securing a buyer for the business, either in
distinct parts or as a whole. To date, a great deal of buyer interest has been
shown in the terrazzo and ceramics production.”

Recently, the administrators closed the business’ Poole factory in Dorset
resulting in 37 employees made redundant.
