Camvac, a UK specialist film supplier for packaging, has appointed the administrators, the official record of the London Gazette has said.

Michael Denny and Jonathan Marston of Alvarez & Marsal Europe are the administrators.

The company, which has annual sales of £22m ($27.21m), employs 120 people in Thetford, Norfolk, regional newspaper Eastern Daily Press reported.

The news of this administration follows three years after the company underwent a major expansion in response to the growing demand for food packaging products.

As part of this expansion, Camvac hired 15 more staff members and scaled up its production.

It reported a substantial loss of £1.3m in 2021.
