Our Machinery and Business Assets department has successfully sold the business and assets of a well established haulier.
The well established business was advertised through our website and circulated to our email list of people interested in purchasing assets and businesses. This generated a number of enquiries and following extensive negotiations with prospective purchasers, the bank and the insolvency practitioner a sale was agreed resulting in the safeguarding of circa 40 jobs.
Malcolm Good, Director of Machinery & Business Assets in our Nottingham office commented "Selling any business as a going concern is usually a complex process. This case was no different, but I am pleased with the level of interest generated in the business and the end result of safeguarding in the region of 40 jobs and providing a return for creditors"
