Furniture business enters administration

Education furniture specialist BR Thornton Ltd has entered administration for the second time in two years.

Parker Andrews of Norwich were appointed administrators after HMRC petitioned to wind up the Ingrow-based company.

It marks the second insolvency for the firm, which formerly traded as British Thornton. That company collapsed into administration back in 2018 but was saved through a management buy-out.

It is understood that BR Thornton employed around 50 staff.
