Aperture Trading, the UK-based designer and manufacturer of plastic and metal windows, doors and conservatories, in the last two weeks of March made redundant 421 employees.

The company entered administration on 16 March and following a very short process it ceased trading. A representative of the administrators said that the company had faced challenging trading conditions and a significant decline in sales and thanked employees for their hard work. Only a small team of the company's 451 employees have remained employed to close down the business.

Aperture Trading is one of the UK’s leading designers and manufacturers of innovative fenestration products, operating nationwide.
