Liquidators appointed at Roldec

Time runs out for Brummie mail-order reseller

Troubled reseller Roldec went into liquidation at a creditors’ meeting in Birmingham yesterday. Joe Atkinson, of Deloitte & Touche, and Brian Hamblin, of Pannell Kerr Forster, were appointed joint liquidators at the Deloitte & Touche offices at Colmore Row, Birmingham. Roldec went down owing around £2 million to creditors, including £690,000 to its factoring company Lombard, according to Deloitte & Touche. The Midlands-based mail-order reseller suffered when a deal with a Far Eastern notebook supplier went wrong last year. See earlier story. ®
