Warrington-based construction company Globe Management Services has gone into administration, with the loss of 60 jobs.
Lindsey Cooper and Diana Frangou from Baker Tilly Restructuring and Recovery have been appointed joint administrators to the firm and its parent company Aprilis Holding.
Another group company, Globe Construction Management, is expected to enter creditors’ voluntary liquidation.
Globe Management Services has made 60 redundancies, with a small number of staff members retained in the short term to help the administrators carry out their duties.
The administrators have appointed an independent firm of quantity surveyors to assist in reviewing around 20 ongoing building projects across the North-west, for a range of private and public sector clients.
Ms Cooper said: “The financial issues faced by the business were such that the directors had little choice but to place the companies into administration.
“Regrettably, we have had to make around 60 staff redundant and our specialist employee team has been assisting them to make claims with the redundancy payments office.”
