Curtain walling specialists enter administration

ELEVEN people have been made redundant after an East Sussex construction firm that provided curtain walling to major projects throughout the UK entered administration.

Harley Curtain Wall Ltd was launched in 1996 and also specialised in windows, doors, structural glazing and rainscreen cladding systems. Projects included high- and low-rise apartment and office complexes.

Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell from business rescue and recovery specialist Begbies Traynor’s Salisbury office were jointly appointed to handle the administration on 8 September 2015.

Various assets have been sold to Harley Facades Ltd, which was incorporated in 2010.

Julie Palmer, regional managing partner at Begbies Traynor said, “Unfortunately, after reviewing all options we were left with little choice but to close the business. The firm had entered difficulty due to cash flow problems.”

Harley Curtain Wall Ltd reported revenue of £6.4m in 2014.
