West Midlands electrical contractor goes under

A West Midlands electrical contractor has entered administration with up to 18 jobs at risk.

Bromsgrove-based electrical contractors AG Shakespeare Limited, in operation since 1998, has decided to cease trading.

John Kelly and Nigel Price, of Birmingham-based insolvency specialists Begbies Traynor, were appointed administrators to the company on 2 November.

Mr Price said: “Some final completion works have been carried out on a small number of contracts after the making of the administration order, but the majority of the employees have now been made redundant. The construction sector is particularly tough at the moment and trading has been difficult for some time.”

The company, based on Harris Business Park, in Stoke Prior, has 18 employees.
