Dispense & Serve, a catering equipment dealer and hire company, has appointed liquidators following a general meeting of the company.
Antony Batty & Company is the insolvency practitioner assigned to this case, and on 3 June at a meeting in its Gray’s Inn, central London office, it was decided Dispense & Serve would be wound up voluntarily.
The catering equipment dealer has its registered address recorded as Waverley House, 7-12 Noel Street in central London, but its principal trading address is in St Martins Way, Tooting. The company was established by Ramon Duijkers and Marinus Eldik in August 2011, though Eldik resigned last December, leaving Duijkers as the sole director.
Companies house details that the firm has fewer than 50 employees, with an annual turnover of less than £6.5m and a balance sheet of less than £3.26m.
The company seems to have registered a Twitter account (handle: @DispenseServe) but this has remained unused. No website information was available to Catering Insight’s knowledge either.
Duijkers and Eldik also ran a company called Staff More Ltd, which was incorporated on the same date as Dispense & Serve, though this was wound up last December.
Furthermore, Duijkers is listed as a director of Major Tom UK (Mjr Tom), which is registered at the Noel Street and St Martins Way addresses as well. Its website states it is a catering event services provider.
Catering Insight tried to contact Duijkers through the Mjr Tom company, but has not been able to reach him for comment as yet.
