Kelso firm Border Precision still trading after job cuts

Administrators have said Kelso firm Border Precision is continuing to trade despite 25 job losses at the plant.

The engineering firm went into administration last week, raising fears for the future of its 180 employees.

A statement for accountants Grant Thornton confirmed that the business was continuing to trade under its control.

Borders MP Michael Moore said it would be a "great loss" to the community if the company was to fold.

"This is why I am urging administrators to work as quickly as possible to find a solution to protect jobs and provide certainty to employees at the firm," he said.

Earlier this week, redundancy advice was offered to the workers affected by the administration.
