Contractor with work across the Midlands falls into administration


A contractor which has worked on sites across the Midlands has appointed administrators, understands.

Enrok Construction, which had offices in Ednaston, Derbyshire and Stafford has posted a notice of appointment to appoint administrators.

In December 2022, Enrok expanded into its Stafford office.

According to administrators, over recent months, the company has faced several challenges including the insolvency of a key supplier along with delays to key contracts that has led to increasing cashflow pressure. In view of this, the directors concluded that insolvency was unavoidable and as such, took the “difficult” decision to put the company into administration.

With the company no longer able to trade, the joint administrators have made seven of the eight company employees redundant.

Tim Bateson, director at Interpath Advisory and joint administrator, said: “The building and construction sector continues to face a number of headwinds, including persistent cost inflation and material shortages which have had the effect of eroding the thin margins that are so often seen in competitive fixed price contracts.”

He added: “Our intention is to assist the employees that have unfortunately been made redundant whilst we seek to realise the assets of the company, including exploring any interest in the Company’s live contracts.”

Enrok has recently built 51 residential units in the West Midlands, including a development of 19 affordable homes for Citizen on Wellington Road in Handsworth.

The company had also worked on a £4m medical centre in Nuneaton – as well as the Glassworks residential scheme in Nottingham.

In the firm’s latest available accounts, made up to the end of May 2022, Enrok had assets of around £563,000 and creditors of almost £433,500.
