A Bristol-based manufacturer of windows and doors has gone into liquidation.
West-End Windows Company Limited, situated in Novers Hill, Bedminster, had been trading for 48 years and employed 17 people.
Lucinda Coleman and Stephen Hobson, of PKF Francis Clark, were appointed joint liquidators on 16 March.
“West-End Windows had an excellent reputation for quality and service but had suffered in recent times due to significant increases in material costs, the pandemic and loss of customers suffering from similar issues,” said Mark Roach, associate director in our business recovery team.
“Sadly it was not possible to rescue the company as a going concern and there was no alternative to liquidation. Our focus now is on realising the assets of the company in order to deliver a return to creditors.”
Any creditors should contact Mark Roach or Charles Bell in PKF Francis Clark’s Bristol office on 0117 403 9800.
Anyone interested in potentially acquiring the assets of West-End Windows, including a large quantity of plant, machinery, stock and vehicles, should contact Simon Cornelius-Light at Lambert Smith Hampton for details by emailing [email protected].
Our business recovery team pride themselves on providing good quality advice with a focus on trying to rescue businesses and avoid formal insolvency wherever possible.
