Shipton Slips Quietly into Administration

One of the oldest established manufacturers of comms equipment slipped quietly in to administration last week.

Shipton Comms, were placed in administration on 4 August. Joint Administrators’ are Anthony Cliff Spicer and Henry Anthony Shinners (IP Nos 9071 and 9280), both of Smith & Williamson Limited, 25 Moorgate, London EC2R 6AY.

Sadly, the passing of such an old stalwart is probably best acknowledged by their own web site which continues to state:
