KPMG has announced that trading will cease at Aperture Trading, the Nottingham-based designer and manufacturer of fenestration products. The majority of the company’s 330 remaining staff will lose their jobs.
Chris Pole and Will Wright from KPMG’s restructuring practice were appointed joint administrators of Aperture Trading Limited on 16 March 2020, but failed to find a buyer.
Tim Bateson, restructuring director at KPMG, said: “We have continued to trade the business since our appointment to enable time for a sale of business process to take place. Unfortunately, no acceptable offer has been received following this accelerated marketing process and as a result, trading will cease immediately.
“Whilst we will be retaining a small skeleton workforce in the short term to assist us with the wind down process, the majority of the 330 staff will regrettably be made redundant. All affected staff have been informed and will be paid for their time working for the joint administrators. We’d like to thank all employees for the support, service and co-operation they have provided to the company, both before and during the administration.”
Operating from premises in Huthwaite, Nottinghamshire, Aperture specialises in PVC-U extrusion as well as fabricated window, door and conservatory products for the domestic, commercial, new-build and social housing sectors. Its brands include the Legend, Synerjy and Evolve PVC-U systems; Warmcore aluminium windows and doors; Craftsman and Benchmark timber doors; Warden fire doors; the Global conservatory roof systems and Stratus roof lanterns.
