Twenty jobs have been lost at a Midland factory which has been an unsuspecting victim of the MG Rover collapse.
Half of the staff at Kingswinford-based Vessel Technology have been made redundant after the company was forced into administration.
Although the company made 40ft high compressed air vessels for the oil, gas and chemical industries, it has suffered from its connection to a firm which did have dealings with Rover.
Joint administrator John Whitfield, of professional services firm RSM Robson Rhodes, said Vessel was part of a larger group that had been hit by the Longbrige crisis.
He said Vessel Technology had provided a loan guarantee for another member of the group which was a supplier to MG Rover. When Rover crashed in April the burden then fell unexpectedly on Vessel.
