The business was put into administration last month, but has now been sold to a new company, Imco, which is part of Environmental Engineering.

Rob Sadler, joint administrator, said: “We were confident a buyer would quickly be found for MSS, and as part of Environmental Engineering, the business and its staff and management have a more secure future.

“With its strong reputation for outstanding design capabilities and quality of service, Environmental Engineering provides an ideal fit, enabling MSS to grow.”
