A LEADING removal company in Ipswich is in meltdown today after falling victim to the slump in the housing market.
Ipswich Delivery Service has been forced to call in liquidators to close the business this week, with the loss of six jobs.
The company was started 60 years ago by Derek Collis and his brother, Denis, who were succeeded by Jennifer Wilson.
Mrs Wilson said: “It was a hard decision to take and see the loyal workforce being made redundant so near to Christmas.
“The directors thank all of those who supported the business throughout the years.”
The liquidators, LB Insolvency Solutions, confirmed the company will be put into liquidation in the New Year and that all customer commitments have been protected.
