40 jobs lost as build­ing firm is forced to close

Scottish Daily Mail - - Weekender - Daily Mail Re­porter

A HIGH­LAND con­struc­tion firm has made 40 peo­ple re­dun­dant af­ter ‘sig­nif­i­cant’ cash flow prob­lems.

Car­bon Dy­namic in In­ver­gor­don, Ross-shire, spe­cialised in de­sign­ing and man­u­fac­tur­ing be­spoke tim­ber mod­u­lar build­ings.

Blair Nimmo and Ge­off Ja­cobs of KPMG LLP were ap­pointed as joint ad­min­is­tra­tors on Thurs­day.

Only two mem­bers of staff have been re­tained to help the ad­min­is­tra­tors, who are seek­ing of­fers for the firm’s busi­ness and as­sets. Mr

Nimmo said: ‘Car­bon Dy­namic was un­able to con­tinue trad­ing in light of chal­leng­ing con­di­tions and sig­nif­i­cant cash flow dif­fi­cul­ties.

‘This has, in turn, re­sulted in the re­dun­dan­cies which have been an­nounced. We will be work­ing with all af­fected em­ploy­ees and the rel­e­vant govern­ment agen­cies to en­sure a full range of sup­port is avail­able.’

He added: ‘We are rapidly ex­plor­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of se­cur­ing a sale of the com­pany’s busi­ness and as­sets and would en­cour­age any in­ter­ested par­ties to con­tact us as soon as pos­si­ble.’
