Plastic company Iplas is in administration and 45 staff have been made redundant.

Administrators are trying to salvage what remains but it is likely the business will be lost to Calderdale.

Joe McLean, of Grant Thornton, said he was speaking to interested parties but they didn’t want to operate from Halifax and the likelihood was that the plant and machinery would be sold off.
