BDL Print Group Goes Into Administration

Administration

| June 30th 2009

More News by David Abbott

Following the collapse of long-established Tunbridge Wells print supplier Paterson Printing Ltd at the end of May, administrators have been appointed for BDL Print Group, the print management arm of the Paterson Group.

Geoff Rhodes and Jon Beard of the Brighton office of Begbies Traynor are handling the administration of both companies.

A total of 50 jobs were lost when Paterson Printing ceased trading on 28 May. A further 20 people were made redundant when BDL Print Group entered administration on 10 June.

BDL was acquired by the Paterson Group in 2006 as part of a strategic plan to facilitate growth within the print management sector.

“The recession has claimed a significant number of casualties within the printing industry but it’s particularly sad to see long-established businesses lose the fight for survival,” said Jon Beard.

“Research undertaken by Begbies Traynor flagged up print and packaging as one of the sectors experiencing critical problems during the first quarter of 2009.

“Investment in cutting edge technology and competitive pricing is essential for these businesses, but the resultant borrowing can leave them vulnerable.
