Telford-based distributor Catering Centre UK has entered creditors voluntary liquidation according to a notice placed on the London Gazette website.
The resolution for winding up stated: “Notice is hereby given that the company be wound up voluntarily and that Craig Povey of CVR Global, Birmingham, and Richard Toone of CVR Global, London, be appointed as joint liquidators for the purposes of such voluntary winding up.”
A company spokesperson indicated that cash flow issues caused by late customer payments to the distributor was a major factor in the decision to wind it up, and that its founders will now be concentrating on a property development venture.
MD Richard Davies established the business in its current form in 2009. He told Catering Insight: “It is with regret that the decision has been made that Catering Centre UK be wound up voluntarily.
“Catering Centre UK has not been sold or continued to trade and all enquiries should be made to CVR Global.
“All employees have found ongoing employment or are pursuing other interests.”
The ENSE member provided services comprising commercial kitchen design, project management, installation, extraction and ventilation solutions, commercial catering equipment sales, repair and maintenance, ceiling and flooring solutions and leasing.
Projects throughout the years included the Falcon Hotel in Bridgnorth, Liquor Lab bar in Telford, Wrekin College in Wellington and Rail Gourmet’s production kitchen in Heston.
The distributor’s website remains operational, along with its Twitter and Instagram accounts, though its Facebook page has been disabled.
