Kinahan - Mivan news ‘terrible blow’ to Antrim

Have your say

South Antrim MLA Danny Kinahan has described the news that Mivan is to cease trading as ““a terrible blow for Antrim and the local economy”.

“Our immediate thoughts must be with the employees who have lost their jobs, alongside their families and every effort must be made by the relevant agencies to provide the support needed in these circumstances and being ever mindful of the difficult times ahead they face,” Mr Kinahan said.

He added: “To see a long standing firm in South Antrim and indeed Northern Ireland such as Mivan cease trading is tragic and it is disappointing that the administrators Deloitte were unable to lock down a purchaser, despite having a number of indicative offers.”
