It's not as if Berforts wasn't a viable concern, either. Their problems appeared to start with a large piece of refurbished printing gear (not used in paperback production) which hadn't taken well to being moved and refused to give reliable results. The resulting costs of redoing projects, together with the damage to reputation, proved terminal.
The irony is that, no sooner was Berforts put into administration than the fateful piece of machinery suddenly kicked into gear and ran trouble free until the day Berforts closed its doors, but by then it was too late.
Who says all's fair in business?
