Roof firm saved from UBC collapse

Managers have bought the roofing company that survived this month’s collapse of UBC Group.

Ian and Willie Sharp have bought Wyvis Roofing from UBC’s administrator Zolfo Cooper for an undisclosed amount, saving 30 jobs in the Highlands.

Wyvis Roofing had continued working while the UBC companies, together with Wyvis Building Services and Mardon Project Services ceased trading on 11 May.

Managing director Willie Sharp said: “We are of course delighted that Wyvis Roofing can continue with business as usual and the entire team are now all 100 per cent focussed on taking the business forward as a standalone entity.”

UBC was 40 years old and had a £31m turnover, with 277 staff employed in central and northern Scotland.
