More than 500 jobs at risk as Annesley warehouse company set to enter into administration


More than 600 jobs have been put at risk after it emerged that an Annesley -based warehousing and distribution company is set to enter administration.

Rebecca Dacre and Simon Chandler of Mazars are to be appointed as joint administrators of Promotional Logistics, which trades as Prolog.

A notice of intention to appoint the administrators has been filed at court , following the withdrawal of financial support by a group company, Mazars said. The company is expected to enter administration during the week commencing 26 November.

The company employs 618 members of staff at two sites in Nottinghamshire and Suffolk.

All staff, as well as customers, have been informed of the move.

Prolog employs 522 people at its base at Sherwood Business Park, Annesley and a further 96 in Sudbury, Suffolk.

Simon Chandler, Mazars’ head of restructuring services and proposed joint administrator, said: “Even at this early stage, I would like to thank the staff and customers for their positivity and support at what is a very difficult time.

“We are seeking to engage with all stakeholders to find a way forward that minimises disruption and gives us the best chance of retaining the workforce.

“The customers we have contacted have been responding very positively, and this is in part due to the excellent service and commitment shown by the company’s workforce in the past.

“We will continue working with all parties to reach the most positive solution possible.”

More when we have it.
