The administrators in charge of trying to keep Darby Glass in business have failed to find a new investor to keep the 38 year old insulating glass company going. In turn, the company goes bankrupt with total debts of £820,000 and leaves 60 people now looking for new employment.

During their peak, Darby Glass employed 500 staff across 12 sites around the UK and had an annual turnover of £22 million.

However, the recession and subsequent difficult trading conditions has meant falling revenues, job losses and now bankruptcy. Lets hope not too many others fall to the same fate.
