Titan Ladders to enter administration

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 | ADMINISTRATION

Titan Ladders Limited is set to enter administration unless a buyer for the distressed business can be found quickly to turn things around.

The business has been trading for more than 80 years and boasted an annual turnover of £5.5 million, but financial struggles have gotten the better of the established ladder manufacturer.

Mazars, a Bristol-based accountancy group, has been appointed to handle the distressed company affairs and oversee the impending administration process.

Tim Ball, who is leading that effort for Mazars, spoke to SouthWest News about the administration: “It is very sad to see another long-established British manufacturing business struggling to compete with overseas competition and internet sales.

“A number of redundancies have already taken place and the company will enter administration in the coming days. The proposed administrators are actively seeking a buyer for the business and assets.”

The business manufactures various types of ladders including aluminium, timber, fibreglass and steel for both home and business use. It is the biggest ladder manufacturer of ladders in the UK but this has not saved the business from having to look at administration.

Bruce Candy, one of the company's directors, said that they would like to “thank all of their trading partners for their loyalty and support over the years” adding that the group regretted the “need to take this action”.
