Norwich glazing supplier Uniglaze 2 (East Anglia) has had to cut 45 more jobs today, taking total redundancies to 270 as the business is wound down.
Administrators from KPMG announced 137 job losses last night, in addition to 88 redundancies on Monday, immediately after they were appointed to the firm.
They have now confirmed an additional 45. Fifteen staff remain with the company to oversee the wind down of the business.
The company, which had a turnover of £21m, employed 285 people across two sites in New Costessey and Spar Road, Norwich.
Chris Pole and Richard Philpott from KPMG Restructuring were appointed joint administrators to Uniglaze 2 (East Anglia).
They said the company had struggled for a number of years “in the wake of the severe downturn that has hit the UK construction sector and wider economy”.
The administrators had hoped for a sale, but said after early discussions with interested parties that it “has quickly become apparent that the possibility of selling the business as a going concern is remote”.
