Alfreton-based catering equipment producer Cougar Manufacturing is to be wound up.
It was listed as a manufacturer of electrical commercial cooking equipment such as deep fat fryers, griddles, grills, bains maries, hot cupboards, convection ovens and cooking hobs.
Insolvency practitioner Wilson Field is handling the case and stated it was too early to comment on the demise of Cougar, confirming: “Robert Dymond and Fiona Grant of insolvency practitioners Wilson Field were appointed as joint liquidators of Cougar Manufacturing on 13 March 2017. The company manufactured a range of catering equipment from premises in Alfreton until it ceased trading.”
A creditors meeting was held at Wilson Field’s Sheffield offices on 13 March, during which the insolvency appointment was confirmed and it was decided that Cougar Manufacturing would be voluntarily wound up.
The firm was originally established in November 2006 as Camvo 158 Ltd in Edinburgh, before becoming Cougar Manufacturing in January 2007, operating out of an address in Glasgow. The firm was also known as Cougar Equipment and Manufacturing as well as Cougar Catering Equipment between March and June 2016.
Companies House lists the current directors as Richard and Karina Hazel.
The Cougar Manufacturing website has been taken offline and when Catering Insight attempted to call the company’s number, it was out of service.
