Doncaster frame producer calls in administrators

8 Apr 14 Norking Aluminium, which produces fabricated aluminium building frames, has been put into administration, with 50 workers facing redundancy.

The 50 workers were informed on Friday that the company was going into administration and that they would be made redundant.

The company has been in business for some four decades, producing architectural glass and metalwork solutions for UK construction companies.

Construction union UCATT are calling for a lifeline to be found and has been in contact with the administrators, Wilson Field.

The union hopes that a buyer can be found for the company and that jobs can be saved. Local UCATT regional organiser John McIntyre is in contact and meeting the workforce and the union is putting systems in place to ensure that the workers receive the redundancy and compensation that they are entitled to.

UCATT are also exploring what re-training opportunities can be provided for the workers who have been made redundant.

McIntyre said: “This is a bitter blow for a hard working dedicated workforce. Every effort should be made to find a buyer for the company to save as many jobs as possible.”
