Over 80 jobs have been lost at a Coventry car parts supply business this week after a buyer for the whole firm could not be found.

Deloitte, the administrator which was called in to find a new owner for Canley-based CovPress Assembly Limited, revealed the news.

Deloitte said it would “continue to seek interest in the remaining business,” the BBC reported.

However, the firm added that “due to the resourcing of some customer work it is currently anticipated that there will be 85 permanent employee redundancies, 30 of which are likely to be voluntary”.
