Dawson Food Service Equipment made a six figure loss in the financial year ending 31 August 2016.
The latest publicly-available accounts show that the Ali Group company posted a loss of £439,908 within that year on a turnover of £5.1m.
Previously the firm reported that it made a loss of £384,899 on sales of almost £7m for the 12 months to 31 August 2015, but the current set of results has updated this to a loss of £411,499.
The year before that it made a profit of £144,459 on sales of £9m.
It is likely that this deteriorating performance was a strong contributing factor to the Ali Group’s decision to close the Barnsley-based outfit, which managed the Comenda, Lainox, Mareno, Rosinox and Rendisk brands.
These will now be supplied through other channels, with Comenda to be exclusively available in the UK through HTG Trading Ltd under its business division Hubbard Systems and Lainox combi ovens heading into the Falcon Foodservice Equipment portfolio.
Rosinox, Mareno and Rendisk will continue to support the UK market from factory direct sales and business development activity. All Dawson engineers will transfer to the Ali Group business Serviceline.
