Co Meath-based Manley Construction has today exited examinership after 100 days following a High Court hearing.

Following the hearing, the company can continue to trade normally which saves 45 construction and administrative jobs at its Duleek headquarters.

Michael McAteer was appointed as examiner by the courts last November to administer the business over 100 days.

During this time, the company went through a rapid transformation and is now able to operate under normal business conditions.

Manley Construction is a family-run business which has been operating since 1987. It provides services in the areas of general and civil contracting, property development, timber frame manufacturing and bespoke joinery.

It operates across both Ireland and the UK.

In a statement, Gabriel Manley said the past 100 days have been a "very humbling" experience for the company. 

"On behalf of the directors of Manley Construction, which include my dad Tom, brother Damien and sister Martina, I cannot thank our clients, design teams, employees and our supply chain for their continued support and assistance during this difficult period," Gabriel Manley said. 

"We deeply regret the position that the company found itself in, but we are looking forward to the future and getting back to normal business," he added.
