14 jobs lost as Highbridge double glazing firm ceases trading

Fourteeen staff in Highbridge have lost their jobs following the closure of a firm making double glazing windows.

Hill Leigh Glazing had been trading on the Walrow Industrial Estate since 1998 but has recently suffered from a fall in demand combined with increased costs.

Neil Fraser, spokesman for the administrators Grant Thornton, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "On 5th July Nigel Morrison and Alistair Wardell of Grant Thornton were appointed administrators at William Stewart Ltd and William Stewart Manufacturing."

"WSM traded as Hill Leigh Glazing and produced double glazed windows and doors. The holding company was set up in 1998 and traded on the Walrow Industrial Estate in Highbridge."

"All 11 staff have been made redundant and the company has ceased trading. The administrators have instructed Edward Symmons LLP to dispose of the assets, which comprise a freehold property and plant and machinery. Those interested should contact Glen Maxwell on 0117 927 3454."
