BR Thornton Placed Into Administration


Pinnacle Furniture are saddened to hear that BR Thornton Ltd has been placed into administration after a series of ongoing financial issues. It is unfortunate to learn that this has become a continuing trend in the industry.

BR Thornton Ltd, previously British Thornton, has gone into administration after battling multiple refinances and changes in ownership. Based in Ingrow, the firm was one of the leading manufacturers of educational furniture for schools, colleges and universities. Around 100 people were employed at the premises off South Street, with roughly half being made redundant in February 2020.
