Epps Construction, based in Ashford, filed for administration on Friday 23rd October after running out of money.

A report in The Kent Messenger quotes managing director Richard Epps saying: “I have sought advice, and I can report, with great regret and sadness, that the advice given was to cease trading.”

Close to 50 people have lost their jobs as a result.

Recent Epps projects include the Wing Visitor Centre in Capel-le-Ferne, Kent, for the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust, which opened earlier this year. The building is designed to imitate the wing profile of a Spitfire aeroplane.
