Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell from business rescue and recovery specialist Begbies Traynor were appointed joint administrators on 8th September 2015.

Owner and managing director Ray Bailey set up Harley Curtain Wall Ltd in 1996. The company also specialised in windows, doors, structural glazing and rainscreen cladding systems. Projects included high- and low-rise apartment and office complexes.

Eleven employees have been made redundant and various assets have been sold to Harley Facades Ltd, which was incorporated in 2010.

Julie Palmer, regional managing partner at Begbies Traynor, said: “Unfortunately, after reviewing all options we were left with little choice but to close the business. The firm had entered difficulty due to cashflow problems.”

Based in Crowborough, Harley Curtain Wall Ltd reported revenue of £6.4m in 2014.
