Armoured vehicle firm Penman in administration
Dozens of staff have been made redundant after administrators were appointed at an armoured vehicle firm.
However, KPMG said that despite "considerable efforts" from staff and owners at the site near Dumfries the business had become "unsustainable".
A total of 44 staff have been made redundant with 17 workers retained to assist the administration process.
The company dates back to 1859 and specialises in armoured military and security vehicles.
Blair Nimmo, head of restructuring at KPMG, said: "Penman Engineering has a long heritage of producing highly specialised armoured vehicles from its base in the south of Scotland.
"The company's experienced, knowledgeable team has worked tirelessly to find long-term sustainable solutions, but - regrettably - cash flow challenges have left the owners with no other choice but administration.
"Our focus as administrators will be on assessing what options are available for the business and ensuring clients and impacted staff members are fully supported throughout this difficult process."
He said they would work closely with Skills Development Scotland, via their PACE team, to support the staff who have been made redundant.
