CarillionAmey has insisted that its services will not be affected by the collapse of one of its parent companies, Carillion.
Carillion said crunch talks over the weekend aimed at driving down debt and shoring up its balance sheet had failed to result in the "short-term financial support" it needed to continue trading while a deal was reached.
CarillionAmey is responsible for 50,000 homes used by armed forces personnel and their families, but it has said it will continue to operate as normal, despite the financial position of Carillion.
In a statement, CarillionAmey said:
"There is a considerable amount of press coverage regarding Carillion’s current financial position, however, the impact on CarillionAmey’s operations remains limited and we will continue to deliver services as normal.
"CarillionAmey Limited and CarillionAmey (Housing Prime) Limited are two separate legal entities and operate almost entirely independently from our parent companies.
"Both CarillionAmey entities get paid directly by our customers and have our own banking facilities, therefore we have no concerns about our ability to continue to operate our businesses and our staff and suppliers will continue to be paid as normal.
"Furthermore, the infrastructure is in place to ensure we can continue to deliver for our customers, which our staff and suppliers will continue to do."
The British Army tweeted that the collapse "has no direct impact on services provided directly to those working for Armed Forces or their families":
The financial situation of Carillion has no direct impact on services provided directly to those working for Armed Forces or their families. Housing will continue to be serviced, catering facilities run, and buildings and offices cleaned.
Sir Jonathan Woodcock, Second Sea Lord and Deputy Chief of Naval Staff, also took to Twitter to reassure Royal Navy personnel:
Can I reassure @RoyalNavy personnel and their families that today’s announcement on the financial situation of Carillion has no direct impact on them. Use all the normal processes, help desks etc. Check the Defence Intranet for more info
Carillion, which has been struggling under £900 million of debt and a £590 million pension deficit, employs 20,000 workers across Britain.
Chairman Philip Green said: "We understand that HM Government will be providing the necessary funding required by the Official Receiver to maintain the public services carried on by Carillion staff, subcontractors and suppliers."
The company is understood to have public sector or public/private partnership contracts worth £1.7 billion.
As a result, the Government has been under increasing pressure to intervene to prevent the collapse of the company.
