Thirty jobs have been lost as it emerged that the glazing business the Lisburn Glass Group Limited has been placed into administration.

The company which has traded for many years from a site at Blaris Industrial Estate, has been closely involved in many significant developments in Northern Ireland and across Great Britain.

Gareth Latimer and Stephen Tennant of business advisors Grant Thornton have been appointed Joint Administrators to the firm .

Mr 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.”

The firm’s website said it had developed “a national reputation in the industrial and commercial glazing market” in 45 years in business .
