Roofing companies, warn DPR, face the same risks when undertaking large international contracts, as others in the construction industry. Wakefield roofing company, DPR, are sorry to learn that well-respected multi-national roofing specialists Hightex Group plc, who constructed the iconic opening roof for Wimbledon’s centre court, are now facing insolvency.

Problems began for the formerly successful roofing company, Hightex, over irregularities in their dealings with a Brazil partner company for work done for the World Cup 2014 in Brazil. It has transpired that directors of the German division of Hightex, who undertook the construction of two World Cup stadia as a joint venture with a Brazil company, have been unable to obtain proceeds owed to them for the work done in Brazil. Hightex GmbH, the German owned arm of Hightex Group plc has now been bought by an Austrian rival company as part of a restructuring program. Hightex Group plc lost the 3.3 million euros due for the World Cup stadia work when managers of the Brazil partner company misappropriated these funds.

Local Wakefield roofers DPR understand that Hightex has secured no work for the World Cup 2018, which is to be held in Russia. Directors of the beleaguered roofing company Hightex Group plc have announced that they intend to institute insolvency proceedings, as the group is now suffering severe financial difficulties as a result of this lost revenue.
