Press release

A bespoke precision engineering business, working predominantly in the automotive and aeronautical sectors, found itself experiencing cashflow difficulties caused by an increase in costs due to the uncertainties surrounding Brexit, and the loss of a key member of the sales team.

When the company’s largest customer reduced its spending by 50%, the director felt the business couldn’t continue and sought advice from the team at Wilson Field.

Wilson Field marketed the business and assets for sale, and a sale of the tangible assets was completed immediately following the administrators appointment, to an unconnected third party.

Kelly Burton, insolvency practitioner and director at Wilson Field, said:

“With so many complications surrounding Brexit, coupled with the loss of some key staff, the company experienced some cashflow difficulties it could not get out of.

There was a positive outcome in the end as some of the tangible assets within the company were sold, which meant a good return for creditors.”
