Robert Dymond - Licensed Insolvency Practitioner - Wilson Field

Wilson Field hopes to sell established Sheffield supplier

Administrators at Wilson Field are already speaking to a number of interested parties after putting a long established Sheffield office equipment supplier and its assets up for sale.

Insolvency practitioners Robert Dymond and Lisa Hogg were appointed on 18 September to R.A. Roberts (Office Equipment) Limitedon Shepcote Business Park in Sheffield.

As regards to purchasing the business and the company’s assets, we are now looking for potential buyers. All options are currently open and we will consider all serious offers

Wilson Field hopes to sell the family-run business as a going concern and to retain all 13 employees. This business dates back to 1922 and its incorporation took place in 1960.

Robert Dymond, insolvency practitioner at Wilson Field, said; “We have only just been appointed to RA Roberts and so we are still assessing the situation.”

“Following competition from web-based suppliers the company followed a proactive diversification strategy, adding a wider range of products and enhancing the office showroom. A downturn in trading, following completion of the works, resulted in a cash shortage to the business which has caused the current financial situation.”

“As regards to purchasing the business and the company’s assets, we are now looking for potential buyers. All options are currently open and we will consider all serious offers. A sale has not yet occurred. The company has a long history and a good reputation after trading for almost 100 years and we have already attracted a host of enquiries from interested parties.”

The company supplies office products, office interiors, janitorial products, promotional supplies,and safetywear and equipment.

Wilson Field is working with valuers and asset management consultants Charterfields on the sale. For further information on R.A. Roberts contact Charterfields on 0330 2020116.
