A Dumfries-based armoured vehicle manufacturer that went into administration has been saved from closure.
Forty-four workers at Penman Engineering were made redundant when administrators KPMG took over last month.
KPMG announced today that the business has been sold to commercial vehicle builder, Martin Williams (Hull) Limited securing the future of the site and the jobs of 16 members of staff who'd been kept on.
The business has been in operation since 1859, specialising in the design, construction and software development of security and armoured military vehicles.
In 2017 it was rescued from a previous administration.
