Solus to close second depot

Solus Garden & Leisure, which went into administration with PwC on 21 May, is to close its Norwich regional distribution centre in July.

The company is closing its Edinburgh centre at the end of June, and also made 91 staff redundant at Tipton and West Bromwich in May.

Solus said: "further redundancies are likely" at Edinburgh, which employs 14 staff, and Norwich, which has 19.

Solus will serve eastern customers from the Midlands.

PwC joint administrator Tony Barrell said: "The company is trading well, with a good level of sales".

Dog Rocks is the latest to cease its distribution agreement with Solus.
