New buyer sought as York clean technology company goes into administration
York’s MSS Clean Technology has gone into administration, but is carrying on trading whilst a new buyer is sought.
On February 7 Andy Clay and Rob Sadler of BegbiesTraynor in York were appointed as joint administrators of the company.
Established in 1982 and based in Sheriff Hutton, MSS specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of laboratories, cleanrooms and controlled environments.
It operates worldwide and has a strong reputation within the pharmaceutical, biotech, healthcare and electronics sectors.
The company is continuing to trade whilst in the hands of the joint administrators while ongoing contracts are brought to completion and a buyer is sought for the business as a going concern.
Joint administrator Rob Sadler said: “MSS is well-known as a specialist in the design and installation of controlled environments and has established a blue chip client base.
“We are continuing to trade the business while it is marketed as we are confident that with its valuable IP and brand as well as the directors’ expertise and its extensive contacts, it will be of interest to a number of potential buyers.”
