13 jobs saved at a Somerset engineering firm

Corporate recovery specialists Quantuma have been able to save 13 jobs at a Somerset engineering firm.

Quantuma partner Carl Jackson and director Simon Campbell were appointed administrators to Caged Laser Engineering (Frome) Ltd on 14 March and immediately set about finding a solution to the company’s problems.

The business, which traded from Unit A4 to A5, Commerce Park, Frome, had been hit by a number of issues – contracts that turned out to be unprofitable and bad debts.

The company provided precision-engineered parts, components and finished products via a wide range of high quality engineering services.

Carl Jackson said: “With a turnover of just under a million this was just too big a hit to take and the directors were forced to seek advice on a way forward.

“I am pleased to say that we have been able to sell the business and assets to a new company, Caged Laser Assets (SW) Ltd and all 13 employees of the original business have been offered jobs.”
