Workers at a Glasgow-based emergency glazing firm have lost their jobs after the company went into liquidation. A Borland & Co (Glaziers) Ltd, which traded as Hurry Brothers, and its subsidiary company Hurry Brothers Ltd, had faced a winding-up petition. WRI Associates were appointed as liquidators for A Borland & Co and Hurry Brothers Ltd, which traded as Borglas.
Hurry Brothers employed 120 people at its peak in the late 1990s, providing emergency glazing and boarding services in the Glasgow area. The company was established in 1955 by Alex Borland, now 80 years old, who retained a non-executive role with the company until its last trading day.
Ian Wright, managing director of WRI Associates, said: “Hurry Bros is a well-known and well-regarded name in the Glasgow area. “Unfortunately, however, sustained trading difficulties have made it impossible for the company to continue its operations. We will now focus on realising the assets of the company in order to deliver maximum creditor returns.”
