12 jobs saved at Oldham engineering company
Machining engineers Oldham Precision has been bought out of administration saving all 12 jobs.
The company’s principal activity was the sub-contracting manufacture of large volume batch precision machined components for clients across a wide range of industries including aerospace, paper converting, printing, coatings, electronics and valve construction.
Administrators Kelly Burton and Lisa Hogg from Sheffield business turnaround experts Wilson Field were appointed joint administrators on 17 January after the company suffered cash flow problems.
Originally established in 1982, the company, based at Red Rose Business Park on Shaw Rd in Royton, offered subcontract engineering including CNC milling, grinding and turning.
After advice from Wilson Field, the business was sold to the existing management team as a going concern saving all 12 employees’ jobs.
Kelly Burton, director in the Leeds office at Wilson Field said; “Following discussions with the director, the business was sold as a going concern, safeguarding all 12 employees’ jobs and offering a better return for the company’s creditors than alternative options.
“The new company will be under the same management offering the same standards of service to its customers.”
