Aluminium cladding specialist collpases

Aluminium cladding, doors and windows specialist RKN Aluminium has fallen into administration.

The Melton Mowbray-based firm had recently moved into purpose-built premises and employed around 30 staff delivering a manufacturing and install service for contractors.

It counted firms like VolkerFitzpatrick, Glencar and Ashe among its main contractor customers.

RKN also worked closely with Bowmer & Kirkland on the Government’s DfE ESFA Framework supporting the Modern Methods of Construction deal, which provided a stream of school projects.

The firm’s problems are understood to have come to a head when a crane hire specialist filed a winding-up petition against the business.

Administrators from London insolvency practice Moorfields are now handling the business.
