Facade specialist ceases trading after voluntary winding-up process

A Merseyside facade specialist has been wound up with immediate effect.

Complete Facade Systems (CFS), based on The Parks, Haydock, announced this week that it had decided to undergo a winding-up process.

It is believed the decision was due to being unable to pay down debts.

It said resolutions were passed on April 19, to commence the process.

A notice on The London Gazette said the resolution declared: “That the company be, and is hereby, wound up voluntarily and that Lisa Ion and Mark Colman, both of Leonard Curtis, be, and are hereby, appointed Joint Liquidators of the company for the purposes of the winding up of the company.”

The Joint Liquidators were appointed on April 24.

The company was established more than 30 years ago, building up experience in façade design and installation.

It was classed as a micro company, with 10 or less staff and a turnover under £2m.

According to the last accounts filed, for the year to October 31, 2022, creditors falling due within a year stood at £227,171, up from £43,047 the previous year.

Net assets were £56,359, up from £18,472.

The accounts showed there was just one employee registered during the year.

CFS specialised in the design, manufacture and installation of facades and had worked with main contractor John Sisk & Son on the final stage of a scheme at the Oxford Science Park which was completed in the third quarter of last year, said Construction News.

It said its ongoing projects included a contract from Lovell Partnerships on the Darley House Estate in Oldbury, West Midlands.

The firm has operated in the education, healthcare, commercial, retail, leisure and residential sectors for the past six years.
