Roldec rolls over

Liquidators to be appointed on 31 March

Roldec, the Midlands–based mail-order reseller, has thrown in the towel. The company has already ceased trading, and is seeking a voluntary winding up order. Yesterday, Roldec directors asked Deloitte & Touche in Birmingham to arrange a creditors’ meeting for March 31. A liquidator will be appointed at the meeting. Roldec ranked two years in succession in the Sunday Times list of the UK’s fastest growing companies. But the company was seriously damaged last year , when a import deal with a Far Eastern notebook supplier went disastrously wrong. ®
