Liquidators appointed as a result of "sustained trading difficulties"
Glasgow-based emergency glazing firm Hurry Bros has gone into liquidation with the loss of 48 jobs.
Liquidators WRI Associates were appointed on Wednesday evening to A Borland & Co (Glaziers) Ltd - which traded as Hurry Brothers - and its wholly-owned subsidiary Hurry Brothers Ltd - which traded as Borglas.
All 48 staff were made redundant by the companies prior to the appointment of the provisional liquidator.
Ian Wright of WRI Associates, who has been appointed as provisional liquidator of both companies, said: “Hurry Bros is a well-known and well-regarded name in the Glasgow area.
“Unfortunately, however, sustained trading difficulties have made it impossible for the company to continue its operations.
“We will now focus on realising the assets of the company in order to deliver maximum creditor returns.”
Hurry Bros, which provided emergency glazing and boarding services, was established in 1955 by Alex Borland, and at its peak in the late 1990s employed 120 people.
