Manchester construction bulk haulage firm Digway has entered administration after 50 years in business.

The company, which traded as Digway Bulk Haulage, held a standard national licence for 15 HGVs, but according to licensing documents this authorisation had been revoked.

Insolvency experts from Cowgill Holloway Business Recovery were appointed to the company on 11 May.

According to its website, Digway was the first haulage company to be run in the country by a Sikh family and it undertook muckaway work, waste management, tipper and plant hire, as well as aggregate supply.

When motortransport.co.uk tried to make contact, lines to the company were not working and the administrator did not respond.
