Potential buyers of the troubled French glass tableware manufacturer Duralex must make themselves known before the end of the year.

Duralex has been plagued by financial difficulty as a result of the pandemic. The company was placed in receivership t the end of September.

As part of an observation period which was opened by the Orléans commercial court, a hearing took place to take stock of the situation.

At the end of this meeting, it was decided to appoint a second judicial administrator. They will therefore be two, henceforth, to hold the reins of this company.

In view of the current context, cash flow tensions are likely to appear at the beginning of the first quarter of 2021.

This is why the court decided to set December 31 as the deadline by which the buyers' offers can be submitted.

The site employs 248 staff and is located in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin, Loiret, near Orléans. It is best known for its Picardy tumblers and its glass is sold around the world.
