Jobs fear as firm calls in administrator

Feb 1, 2006

More than 300 jobs have been put at risk after one of Sandwell's oldest firms called in the administrators. Bosses at Cradley Heath-based Eliza Tinsley has notified the City of the administration move.

As well as 175 people at its newly opened headquarters in Garratts Lane, the firm has 134 employees at its Smithson factory in Wolverhampton.

It also owns four other UK plants and operations in Italy and the US.

The move followed a refusal by Tinsley's bankers to lend it more money.

Sort of sums up the way of things today. Broken down and the AA patrol arrives to help you. No longer are you a member in need of help and reassurance but a sales prospect.

Only a small anectote but a local concrete firm has just shut and is laying off 10 staff,the reason i mention this is that there must be hundreds of firms(small) that are laying people off during these uncertain economic times and when you add them all together they are making a difference although not really being noticed..............

scaramanga,

Agree, it is the small and small-medium sized firms that I think have been most hit by red tape - also very difficult for a small company to re-size itself and release assets, a retail chain for exmple can shut a few underperforming shops whereas a small company in a single building is pretty much buggered it it is being hanmmered month on month with unpayable rates/rents. Of course most fo what is happening in the small business sector never reaches the papers aprt from the odd few mentions in local rags.

I told a couple of friends of mine 6months ago that I thought the economy would be in trouble in the next few years....they laughed.

In the last two weeks, redundancies have been made at both places.

Gotta get those Chinese et al goods in.

Journalists, hmm, newspapers on the way out?

Care homes, lots of financial problems there, especially if related to LA funded residents.

Mushroom,

Yes when you look at who is hiring - Supermarkets - well for every job they create they wipe out mre local retail/support kobs.

Warehouse/Distribution - bigger and cheaper warehousing - again unless there is consumption growth that just knocks out some distribution centre elsewhere.

Port and container facilities - more imports - less manufactured here.

We will be a nation of shop assistants with fewer and fewer people with money left to buy the goods.
