Wren Printed Packaging has fallen into administration, with the business subsequently closed and all staff made redundant.
Jamie Taylor and Dominik Czerwinke of Begbies Traynor’s Southend office were appointed joint administrators on 9 July.
Wren was founded in 1972 and specialised in food and cosmetics packaging.
A statement from the administrators said: "Auctioneers and valuers have been engaged to find a buyer for the business and/or assets of the company and there has been significant interest so far".
According to the company’s website, the Southend-based company had in-house CAD facilities, an undisclosed number of litho presses, including a six-colour B1 press, two coating lines, a B2 die-cutter and two folder-gluers.
Clients have included Boots, Costa, Morrisons, Parker, Stanley and WH Smith.
Neither Taylor or Czerwinke were available for additional comment at the time of writing.
