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.
