Blackburn-based dealer Catersure is closing its doors.

Blackburn-based dealer Catersure will soon be taking the decision as to whether to appoint liquidators, according to a notice posted on the London Gazette website.

A creditors’ meeting of the firm will be held as a virtual conference call on 19 March 2019 at 11.00am.

The notification stated: “Directors of the company are seeking a decision from creditors on the nomination of joint liquidators by way of a virtual meeting. A resolution to wind up the company is to be considered on 19 March 2019.”

Should the resolution pass, the nominated liquidators are Bolton-based Cowgill Holloway Business Recovery. It is not known why Catersure is mulling whether to take this step.

According to Companies House, listed directors are Christopher, Paul and Diane Choularton. Catering Insight has been unsuccessful in contacting the dealer for comment, and the business’ website and social media accounts have all been disabled.

Catersure was established in 2000 and grew to occupy a 12,000ft2 facility in Blackburn. The firm specialised in industrial kitchen and restaurant equipment and design, as well as bar installations and refurbishments.

It sold many types of catering equipment from brands including Alpeninox, Charvet and Zoppas.

With its own fabrication capabilities Catersure also designed and manufactured industrial extraction systems in-house, installed and commissioned by its own engineers.

It is possibly this fabrication expertise that director, Christopher Choularton may be utilising going forwards, as on 27 February he incorporated a company called Cass Fabrication, along with business partner Alan Hodgkinson, with a registered office in Preston.
