A printing firm has gone into liquidation just a month after its highest sales in 27 years.
Have your say
Just to pick up on one point in the comments on this article - here at Copeland Borough Council our printing is either undertaken in house or via our print contractors who are based in Keswick and have offices in Whitehaven.
When do you stop lending J Rochester? The most likely answer to that is when you have no chance of getting it back.
@Tony...for a person that tells us that we either don't know the facts or shouldn't assume, you seem to do quite a lot of judging based on both ('a failed business','If the business was generally bouyant, banking would not be an issue', 'The bank didn't need vision, it needed a clear opportunity to prevent further losses').it's telling that you were once a creditor as that might explain your generally unsympathetic attitude towards this company/debtor.however, there is one subtle difference between you as a creditor and many high street banks - you probably weren't bailed out to the tune of billions of pounds, on very good terms, to keep your failing company afloat, by the very taxpayers who you then refused to lend to!I'm not saying this company is a potential gold mine, but to defend the banks' ethos, after they have virtually crippled the country, is confusing, at best.
