Caithness Glass Calls In The
Deloitte Touche the well known accountancy firm have been called in as
receivers for the well known Caithness firm of glass makers that have
premises in Wick, Oban, Perth and King's Lynn. The firm have changed
hands a number of times over the years and are well known for their paper
weights and their long association with the Mastermind trophies. Up
to 50 staff are employed at Wick. A representative for Deloitte
Touch interviewed on television today said they were hopeful of finding a
buyer for the business which they are continuing to operate meantime.
The firm is one of the largest private employers at Wick and it would be a
severe blow to the area if staff were to be made redundant in an area
already suffering a high rate of unemployment. The other areas
involved particularly at Perth where the bulk of the employees are would
also see this as a major blow. Difficult trading conditions were
being put forward as the reason for the current problems.
