Upper Bann DUP candidate Carla Lockhart has expressed her regret that 33 jobs are at risk after Maurice Stevenson Limited has announced closure. The company went into administration yesterday.
Carla Lockhart said, "This news is deeply regrettable for our business community here in Lurgan. Maurice Stevenson Limited was a long, well established company.
The family run business gave many local people employment over the years and they too will be saddened by this news. I have spoken many times with the company and will continue to liaise with them on this issue.
My thoughts are with those currently employed by the Lurgan based company, who are now faced with the prospect of unemployment and for the owners of the company who are going through this difficult time."
