The High Court has dismissed an application to have a provisional liquidator appointed to a window manufacturing company where some former workers have conducted a sit-in.

A supplier of Hele Windows Ltd based in Midleton, Co Cork, had petitioned the court to have a provisional liquidator appointed.

Profile Systems Holdings claims it is owned €93,000 for goods and services it supplied to Hele's manufacturing facility at Owenacurra Business Park, Knockgriffin, Midleton.

Today Ms Justice Mary Laffoy said there were questions about the motives for the petition.

She dismissed Profile's application to have a provisional liquidator appointed after being informed that Hele had passed a resolution to go into voluntary liquidation.

The judge adjourned the application to have the company wound up to a date a December.

Hele Windows was Ireland's first PVC window manufacturer.
