|Manroland GB administrator warns of possible spare parts delay|
The administrator for Manroland GB has warned the manufacturer’s UK users that there may be a delay in getting hold of spare parts for machinery.
The company entered administration with PricewaterhouseCoopers on Monday afternoon (5 December) following its parent company Manroland AG, which filed for insolvency on 25 November.
According to administrator Zelf Hussein no redundancies have been made since the appointment and at this stage there is no intention to make any.
But he said: "We are trying to open up supplies from Germany and we are in discussions with the guys over there at the moment.
"They have said that they will be helpful and cooperative where they can, but the problem is getting them to move quickly. The problems they face are of a much larger scale than the UK and we are not at the top of their priority list. We are not abandoning printers but there are restrictions on the supply route."
Hussein also told PrintWeek that there has already been two enquiries into the business, including one from a rival business and one from a private equity firm.
He added: "We would like to get something resolved quickly and we hope it is a matter of weeks not months. The feeling is we can trade the business for a number of weeks and stabilise it during that time.
Hussein also said that he was not aware of any UK companies that had already paid a deposit on a press from Manroland and not had it delivered yet.
"If there are any we will need to look at each case on its own individual basis," he said.
