A 200-year-old Staffordshire copper works has gone into administration, risking 110 jobs.
Joint administrators said Thomas Bolton was suffering "short-term cash-flow difficulties" and would continue to operate while searching for a buyer.
The company said its factory in Froghall was the last remaining manufacturer of copper in Britain.
Its major projects included producing generator power parts for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
