Duracord Enters Receivership
Tyre cord maker Duracord (Europe) has collapsed with the loss of 70 jobs, the Manchester Evening News has reported. Durachord of Castleton, Rochdale, was previously known as Dunlop Textiles. The company’s directors called in administrators last week and the company has now gone into receivership. Phil Roberts, Rochdale branch secretary of the GMB union, said Duracord’s employees would have to apply to the government for their wages, holiday money and redundancy pay, which could be a lengthy process.
