Alliance Assembly candidate for Upper Bann Tara Doyle has said many people are shocked at the news Lurgan based company Maurice Stevenson Ltd is to go into administration.
Tara Doyle said: “Maurice Stevenson Ltd has been a household name in Lurgan for 95 years and has provided employment for many families over that time. It is sad news that due to difficult trading conditions the company is going into administration. My thoughts are with the management of the company and my hopes are that the administrators can find a buyer to safeguard the jobs of the 33 people currently employed there.
“It is essential that a stable government is returned after this election to ensure adequate support is provided for companies such as Stevensons, who for generations have been a vital component of the economy of many towns across Northern Ireland.”
