A furniture company has gone bust with 252 job losses after reporting “a catastrophic collapse in orders”.
Triumph Furniture of Merthyr Tydfil, which has bases in the town and Dowlais, supplied more than 600 furniture sellers, as well as being a major supplier of central government.
The firm went into administration on Tuesday, after an “unprecedented fall in sales” over the last 10 weeks.
Administrators said 239 jobs will go immediately.
The remaining 13 will be kept on in the short-term to help administrators.
