Administrators at steelwork contractor Cleveland Bridge have confirmed that 53 workers will be made redundant

Cleveland Bridge, which was founded 144 years ago, entered into administration in July.

Administrators at FRP revealed 53 jobs at Cleveland Bridge had been made redundant, while 25 core staff remain at work to assist the administrator with its duties, in anticipation of restarting production.

FRP said the roles were being made redundant for “operational and financial” purposes.

153 staff remain furloughed as part of the Coronavirus Jobs Retention Scheme.

A handful of employees also left their positions voluntarily.

‘Focused on restarting production’

Martyn Pullin, partner at FRP, said: “We remain focused on restarting production to support clients with live project work while pushing forward ongoing talks with interested parties.

“Regrettably, a number of roles have been made redundant as we restructure the business.

“Our team is on site to support impacted staff through this difficult period and assist in making claims through the Redundancy Payments Service.”

FRP is urgently seeking a buyer to protect as many jobs as possible.
