Double-glazing firm Everest Windows are reportedly on the brink of administration, which would put more than 700 jobs at risk.
Like many businesses within the industry, the coronavirus crisis has severely impacted operations – and Everest has seen contracts worth more than £20m been put in jeopardy.
Everest has temporarily suspended operations and is now believed to be in talks with potential buyers.
A statement on the company’s website read: “Unfortunately our manufacturing, installation and customer service functions all remain closed with the aim of keeping our staff and customers safe.
“Following the Government statement that allows manufacturing companies to begin working, we are currently planning to restart operations very soon.
“Sadly as our work involves visiting customers’ homes and many of our staff work in teams we are currently having to delay this restart until we can take all possible measure to protect our staff and customers.”
