Direct mail firm readies administrators

A Nottinghamshire direct mail provider is facing an uncertain future, understands.

The Mailshop, which is based in Hucknall, has posted a notice of intention to appoint administrators via law Shoosmiths. The move protects the firm from creditor action for a period of around ten days.

FRP Advisory has been lined up to be appointed administrators according to legal documents.
