Nearly 60 jobs lost and dozens threatened at engineering firm
Fifty-eight people have been made redundant at Enterprise Engineering Services Ltd.
Nearly 60 jobs have been lost and dozens are under threat at a Scots engineering firm.
Fifty-eight people have been made redundant at Enterprise Engineering Services Ltd (EESL) in Aberdeen and Caithness.
Owner Craigshaw Holdings has now entered administration, putting another 49 jobs at risk.
Its bosses said the downturn in the oil industry had seen order numbers fall and turnover drop from £23m in 2014 to £17m in 2015.
A total of 108 people were employed at EESL in Aberdeen and another seven in Caithness when administrators KPMG LLP were appointed as administrators on Thursday.
Head of restructuring Blair Nimmo said: "Enterprise Engineering Services Limited has a long history of servicing the energy industry across the UK but, like many businesses in the sector, it has been negatively impacted by the low oil price and the consequent reduction in upstream activity.
"We are currently working with retained staff to realise all assets, and will provide all employees affected by redundancies with appropriate guidance and support.
"We will do everything we can to seek a buyer who may be able to protect the company."
