No workload sends Dickiesheba on the rocks

An east Midlands rock-crushing contractor has gone into administration because its workload has dried up.

Newark-based Dickiesheba called in the administrators last week after workload at the £5 million-turnover firm plummeted in the past couple of months.

The firm works for some of the biggest aggregates firms including Cemex, Aggregate Industries and Tarmac.

Administrator Chris Farrington, a partner at Deloitte in Nottingham, said: “They’ve been hit by a lack of demand caused by the downturn in the construction industry.”

The company, which employed 25 people and also has an office in Stirling, now has 10 staff on its payroll.
