Sale of engineering firm saves 16 jobs

Mechanical engineering company, Alatas Engineering, specialise in the repair and testing of hydraulics. The Bradford-based company was established in 2000 under its original name Micron Precision Engineering.  The business operates from a specialist workshop, and at the time of the administration, the company had an annual turnover of £1.5m.

Following a series of exceptional circumstances the company experienced crippling cash flow issues. As a result of the downturn of the oil and gas industry there was a decline in orders from offshore customers. The company also suffered the loss of a key client who set up as a competitor; this loss was compounded when several key members of staff defected to this newly-formed rival company.
