The biggest downfall for the Local stone company was not buying their own loading shovels.
We work for a company that insists on hirering loading shovels.....
The rate they pay for the Volvo150's they hire pays for the machine in 2.5 years. They hire them for three years. the last six months revenue would easily cover service repairs and tyres. They would then own the machine.
Long term hirering is good only for the hirer.
Local stone hired their shovels at a cost of 8 grand a month.

Hire Mee have been trading from Royston if nowhere else.

Would they have had ADT's, dozers, excavators etc for bulk earthworks from North East area? Came across that name in Croydon years ago on a landfill cell.

I believe they are. They've been working in a couple of quarries in the Leighton Buzzard area. Seen their lorries moving around the area a couple of times.
I heard they've sold quite a bit of their plant and are tending to use a lot of agency drivers at the moment. They were using MMA from Chorley in Lancs. I tried to get in there a few months back but it was either CPCS or EPIC card.

Scottish civil engineering contractor McKean & Company (Glasgow) is to be placed in liquidation by its directors.

Earlier this week up to 40 staff were sent home after being told that the Glasgow contractor and its sister business, Hudson Vision, was being wound up.

The founding family sold the £40m turnover contractor to David Noar and Mark Fallon, who had both been in senior roles at North West contractor Mayfield Construction, just over two years ago for a reported £1m.

The civil engineering contractor was established just after the first World War and in recent times has counted Skanska, Sir Robert McAlpine and Bellway among its clients.

Ernst & Young is expected to take on the job of liquidator of McKean & Company and Hudson Vision, which specialised in CCTV and electrical maintenance work.

The accountants will look to novate contracts that McKean had been working on before it ran into cash flow problems.

The McKean Group and subsidiary civils contractor Mayfield Construction are unaffected by the winding up plans.

Another result of the climate we find ourselves in and a whole lot of subbies roasted in the process....................


Bowen goes into liquidation

Irish contracting giant Bowen has gone into liquidation just weeks after work stopped at its UK operation.

The contractor once turned over more than £250m and employed hundreds of staff but at the end only 70 people were working at the Cork based firm.

Operations at Bowen’s Twickenham based UK division were suspended in May when the 29 staff were told not to report for work anymore.

The UK division worked mainly on mid-sized contracts in London and south-east England.

The management team was headed by ex-Mowlem men CK Patel, Ray Cutts and Ian Posnett and the firm specialised in commercial, residential and industrial contracts up to £100m
