A preliminary court hearing had been set for 6 March.

'It is not possible to determine what the outcome of this court hearing will be and, given the nature of the sentencing guidelines, nor is it possible to determine with any certainty what, if any, financial penalties might be levied on Chesterfield Special Cylinders,' Pressure Technologies said.
