19 jobs saved at fibreglass manufacturer

Nineteen jobs at two fibreglass products manufacturing businesses have been saved after the companies were sold out of administration.

The sale of Country Leisure GRP Ltd and Loyal Grove Leisure LLP has been announced by Julie Palmer and Neil Vinnicombe, of business rescue and recovery specialists Begbies Traynor.

The administrators were appointed over the businesses to handle a sale out of administration to Country Leisure Fibreglass Limited.

Country Leisure GRP Ltd and Loyal Grove Leisure LLP employed 39 members of staff from premises in Cholderton, near Andover in Hants, and Burntwood in Staffordshire.

The firms specialise in the manufacture and contractual business of fibreglass products including architectural features, water slides and vehicle bodies. Combined turnover of the group was around £3m.

Julie Palmer, who is regional managing partner for Begbies Traynor’s South West region and based at the firm’s Salisbury office, said: “The businesses had previously suffered a slew of bad debts and we always felt that there was always a viable business here if they were given a fresh start.

“We were particularly pleased that we were able to save 19 of the 39 jobs. The business will continue to operate from its premises in Cholderton.”
