ERA’s parent company to pay back UK furlough money

Tyman plc, the parent company of ERA, Zoo, Schlegel-Giesse and Access360, intends to pay back the £2.3m it received in 2020 under the UK Government’s Job Retention Scheme. The payment will be made in full before year end.

Darren Waters, Divisional CEO for Tyman UK and Ireland, says: “During the second half, our businesses have benefited from the strong recovery in the residential and commercial markets and we are in the fortunate position where we are able to return this money. The Job Retention Scheme served its purpose in supporting us to preserve jobs through the uncertainty. Other sectors, including hospitality, leisure and retail, have been hit hard and need further Government support to get through this crisis. For Tyman, paying back the money is the right thing to do.”
