Flora-tec have said that they will lose £880,000 and shed 10 jobs after the collapse of Carillion.
It's certainly not good news for Flora-tec and those losing their jobs but we can, as an industry, take comfort that the majority of the work awarded to the bloated Carillion will still be undertaken by someone....the good thing is that all of the projects will be distributed amongst smaller more agile, firms. It will take a bit of time for the effects of Carillion's demise to ripple through the industry but I think it's a watershed moment that will literally change the commercial landscaping and maintenance landscape.
