A former Plessey electronics and semiconductor foundry has appointed administrators after sustaining losses.
MHS Electronics Limited was known as Zarlink up until a year ago, when the analogue chip company was sold for one Euro to the French company MHS Electronics.
"We have regrettably had to make 14 redundancies but we are working to secure a going concern sale of this established and highly skilled business," said Simon Girling, joint administrator at BDO Stoy Haywood. "The contraction of the consumer electronics and technology industries, and the wider economic conditions, have all played a part in MHS Electronics UK Limited's current difficulties".
When MHS bought the business from Zarlink, the Canadian-based company incurred a $13 million loss on the sale of the business. MHS also received 2 million towards costs of restructuring.
