Industrial fastener supplier Williams Fasteners has ceased trading, with administrators KPMG appointed on 6th October 2016, reports Insider Media.
The Sheffield-based business has been trading since 1870 and issues including the difficulties of the steel industry and a large pension deficit are reported to have added to the company’s difficulties.
Williams Fasteners was a family-run business throughout most of its history, until 2005. It had premises in Middlesbrough, Manchester and South Wales.
