Rowecord Engineering, Newport: Olympic roof firm set for administration

The biggest steelwork contractor in Wales is due to go into administration later putting 400 jobs at risk.

Newport-based Rowecord Engineering says it has exhausted every option to sustain the business.

The roof for the Olympics aquatic centre was among its many high-profile projects.

BBC Wales business correspondent Nick Servini is at Rowecord's headquarters in Newport for Good Morning Wales.

He spoke to Jonathan Deacon, a reader in marketing and entrepreneurship at the University of South Wales in Newport, and Ron Jones, Labour councillor for the Pillgwenlly ward, where Rowecord is based.
