However, premises in Whitburn (factory and shop), and shops in Newtown in Edinburgh, George St in Aberdeen and Cornhill in Aberdeen have been closed, with a total of 17 redundancies.

Headquartered in Aberdeen, the company was founded in 1992 and grew to 19 sites stretching from Fraserburgh and Ellon in the north east of Scotland to Edinburgh in the central belt.

Six sites provide industrial laundry services for major corporate clients, including hotels and ferries, and employ around 60 staff. The 12 retail sites, based in residential areas, provide drycleaning and associated services to the consumer.

Joint administrator Iain Fraser of Tenon Recovery said: “Scotia Linen Services is a highly regarded specialist laundry and drycleaning business with a good network of sites and a skilled workforce.

“The company has grown steadily and has an excellent corporate client base and good penetration into the retail market. This is a good opportunity for an established player wanting to expand through acquisition, or for an entrepreneur keen to move into the cleaning sector.”
