Offer of support to EIC employees and suppliers

Receivers were called in last Thursday at Alcester based EIC Group Holdings Limited, a leading national building services and facilities management company, who employed over 300 people across 7 sites in the UK.

Over the last 3 days the Growth Hub has offered help and support to all affected employees and has liaised with the Administrators, the Department of Work and Pensions, Jobcentre Plus, the Local Authority and the Citizens Advice Bureau in order to provide a co-ordinated approach, and a single point of contact for all of the information and support available to the employees.

In addition we have spoken to several suppliers who are affected by outstanding payments from EIC.

BBC Coventry and Warwickshire have broadcast a message from Phil Peak, Senior Account Manager at the growth hub, offering support to affected employees and suppliers.
