Liquidator appointed to Carlow firm




A Carlow engineering firm that helped power up the London Olympics is to close its doors later this month.

The High Court has today appointed a liquidator to the insolvent Whitelite Automation Limited which has been in business for almost 30 years and employs 29 people.

A rescue package for the company failed when an investor pulled out due to the external factors of falling oil prices and the economic crisis in Russia.
