Joint administrator Rob Sadler, from York-based Begbies Traynor, said: “MSS is well-known and has established a blue chip client base.

“We are continuing to trade the business while it is marketed as we are confident that its brand, it directors’ expertise, and its extensive contacts, will be of interest to a number of potential buyers.”
