Building slump claims another victim

Nov 14, 2012 (The Australian Financial Review - ABIX via COMTEX) -- A New South Wales-based construction company has been placed in administration. The collapse of the Procorp Group of Companies is a further blow to the construction industry. According to the Australian Securities & Investments Commission, the construction industry has reported the largest number of insolvencies during 2012. The failure of several large building companies is thought to have contributed to the failure of smaller groups. The tightening of banks' lending policies is also thought to be playing a major role in the trend.
