Clugston Group – Update From The Joint Administrators

The jobs of 67 Clugston employees have been saved after the joint administrators of Clugston Construction concluded a deal to transfer their employment to French contractor CNIM.

CNIM had been working alongside Clugston on five energy from waste projects, where construction will continue.

Working with the respective customers, staff working on three facilities management contracts have also been transferred to alternative suppliers, safeguarding the employment of an additional 15 people who worked for Clugston Services.

Whilst there remains interest in certain other construction contracts, it has not been possible to conclude notations, and so unfortunately a further 128 of Clugston’s employees have had to be made redundant.

James Clark, Joint Administrator from KPMG, said: “We are very pleased to have secured employment for 82 members of the Clugston workforce through a series of deals, but equally acknowledge what a difficult time it is for those employees who have had to be made redundant. I’m grateful to all Clugston staff for their professionalism, and to the Insolvency Service for dealing with statutory payments promptly.”

There are a further 51 employees who continue to assist the Administrators as they negotiate additional contract sales and deal with the affairs of the Companies.
