Stirling Group factory closed

Stirling Group, the lingerie and swimwear manufacturer and key supplier to Marks & Spencer that went into administration last month, has had its Nottingham factory closed by its administrator, resulting in 48 further job losses.

Bill Dawson, partner in the reorganisation services practice at administrator Deloitte, said: “After reviewing the ongoing trading needs of Stirling Group, 48 people were made redundant on Friday February 5, 2010, at the company’s factory in Nottingham.

“Whilst actively exploring options for sale, we will continue to trade the Altrincham distribution centre and factories in Sri Lanka as a going concern.”

Bill Dawson and Lee Manning of Deloitte, the business advisory firm, were appointed joint administrators of Stirling Group, which supplies lingerie and swimwear to retailers including Marks & Spencer, on January 22.

Initially, 47 staff were made redundant at the company’s head office in Altrincham, followed by a further 36 head office redundancies, predominantly among administration staff, on Friday January 29.

The latest round of job cuts brings the total to 131.
