New future for Sheffield furniture manufacturer
A Sheffield furniture manufacturer and upholster has relaunched offering a smaller, more specialised range of products.
Directors took advice from Wilson Field with the business sold to new company Designer Recliners Limited as a going concern, safeguarding all 11 employees’ jobs
Anico Interiors Limited, which included reclining chairs for the elderly, had suffered cash flow problems and issues with profitability.
Designer Recliners Limited, managed by director Nick Wall, has purchased the assets and business of Anico saving all 11 jobs.
Andy Wood and Robert Dymond from Sheffield business turnaround experts Wilson Field were appointed joint liquidators on 8 June and advised on the sale of the 14-year-old company, based on Orgreave Crescent at Orgreave Industrial Estate, as a going concern.
Andy Wood, associate director and insolvency practitioner at Wilson Field said: “Historically, the company offered a wide range of products but has now streamlined its offer to customers and cut out some unprofitable lines, as well as re-vamped its web site.
“Directors took advice from Wilson Field with the business sold to new company Designer Recliners Limited as a going concern, safeguarding all 11 employees’ jobs. The new company will offer the same service and standards under the same management team but focus on a smaller range of specialised products.”
The company employs skilled staff including upholsterers, seamstresses and cutters and was set up in 2002 by Nick Wall.
