Chris Pole, one of the joint administrators, said: 'Unfortunately, problems relating to the investment in a new production facility at the same time as securing a major new contract created significant and irresolvable cash flow issues for the business.

'Whilst we are currently reviewing the position, it is our intention to continue to trade this business in the short term whilst we explore the possibility of achieving a going concern sale. Norfolk Capacitors is an important employer in the region, and a historically successful business and we are hopeful a new owner can be found.'
