Around 30 jobs have been lost at a Co Antrim glass manufacturer after it entered administration.

Lisburn Glass Group Limited has been placed into administration, with Gareth Latimer and Stephen Tennant of Grant Thornton appointed joint administrators.

The business, which had traded for more than 40 years, was based at Blaris Industrial Estate, Altona Road.

It had employed around 30 staff. But it has now ceased trading, with all jobs lost.

Gareth Latimer said: “We have been working with the directors since the start of the year and reviewed the options available but creditor pressure has increased leaving the directors with no alternative but to seek the protection of an Administration appointment.”

"The business has ceased trading and all employees have been made redundant. We will be carrying out a sales process in order to maximise value for creditors".
