Clinical waste firm Healthcare Environmental Services (HES) has gone into liquidation four months after all of its staff were made redundant.
Accountants BDO have been appointed to the Lanarkshire-based company which lost multi-million pound contracts with NHS Scotland and 17 trusts in England.
About 150 jobs were lost at its Shotts HQ last year and staff have been pursuing legal action to recover wages. Lawyers acting for the workers believe they could be owed more than £1m.
The liquidators are now seeking access to the company’s books and records.
