Eleven jobs lost at Belfast company

An English engineering company has made 11 staff redundant at its Belfast arm.

WR Refrigeration fell into administration last week and although a buyer was found for the bulk of its contracts, a lack of interest in the remaining interest has forced the redundancies.

Administrators PwC said 232 employees, including the 11 in Belfast, will lose their jobs across the UK and 249 will transfer to Integral, the firm which bought the contracts.

The remaining 119 staff will stay on at the company in the interim to assist the administrators, including the last remaining employee at the Dargan Crescent base in Belfast.

"Unfortunately, the level of interest and support for the remaining business means that we have no alternative than to begin the wind down of the company," Eddie Williams, PwC joint administrator, said. "We have retained 119 employees to assist us.

"I would like to thank all the employees for their cooperation since our appointment and we will look to support them at this difficult time."
