Nearly 50 jobs have been lost following the collapse of a Glasgow-based emergency glazing and boarding services firm.

WRI Associates were appointed as liquidators for A Borland & Co (Glaziers) Ltd, which traded as Hurry Brothers, and its subsidiary Hurry Brothers Ltd, which traded as Borglas.

The move followed the presentation of a winding-up petition.

All 48 staff employed by the companies were made redundant.

Hurry Brothers was established in 1955 by Alex Borland, and employed 120 people at its peak in the late 1990s.

Ian Wright, from WRI Associates, said: "Hurry Bros is a well-known and well-regarded name in the Glasgow area.

"Unfortunately, however, sustained trading difficulties have made it impossible for the company to continue its operations.

"We will now focus on realising the assets of the company in order to deliver maximum creditor returns."
