The Welsh Government has confirmed that assistance was offered to Rowecord, but that it was not taken up.
The Welsh Government has worked closely with Rowecord to support the business and offered assistance to the maximum level allowable within state aid rules.
However, the offer was not taken up, as Rowecord decided that it is in the best interests of its employees and partners to file for administration when a buyer for the business may be identified.
The Welsh Government added that 'as much support as possible' would be made available to employees.
