A bespoke joiners and shop fitters in Sheffield, M J Squire Limited, had been in its trade for more than 30 years.
However, recently it has been forced to close due to the downturn in the construction and retail industry.
The company was located at Orgeave Close in Sheffield, after working for many household names over the years including House of Fraser, Levi’s, Austin Reed and Tommy Hilfiger.
Until 2014, it had been a profitable company but over the past couple of years, it had been unable to secure profitable contracts.
Operations at M J Squire Limited have now ceased and regrettably, all nine roles within the company were made redundant.
Andy Wood, insolvency practitioner from Wilson Field, spoke about his work on this case.
“Declining sales at M J Squires significantly impacted cash flow and the business’ ability to meet its liabilities. In the face of tough market conditions, the director has taken the difficult decision not to continue trading. The business has closed and the assets are being sold.”
“It is very sad to see this well-known local business cease to trade after over 30 years. The downturn in the retail sector has hit this business hard.”
