Haulage company enters administration

Tue, 31 Jul 2018 | ADMINISTRATION

A Norfolk-based haulage business has been forced to call in administrators as a result of “historic trading difficulties”.

Harveyson Haulage Ltd - a provider of septic tank services with a reported £2 million turnover - brought in corporate insolvency practitioners Quantuma on 18 July 2018, and appointed partners Simon Campbell and Andrew Watling as joint administrators.

A buyer is now being sought for the business, located in East Harling, Norwich, as it continues to trade.

The business operates in a number of areas in Norfolk, including Attleborough, Wymondham, Watton, Long Stratton and Scole. All 17 members of staff have been kept on board during the administration process.

According to the company, a good septic tank is absolutely essential to "maintaining a safe and healthy environment", and are a necessity for the population of Norwich in the upkeep of the region's secure infrastructure.

Campbell, who is also Quantuma’s director, said: “Harveyson Haulage Ltd was founded in 2006 and the turnover of the company has reached £2 million, but the business was the subject of a winding up petition from HMRC due to historic trading difficulties, and Quantuma have been appointed to trade and sell a fundamentally viable business.

“We will be working with interested parties with the aim of securing a sale of the business as an ongoing concern and would welcome any expressions of interest.”

As well as administrations, Quantuma also handles personal insolvencies, liquidations, mergers and acquisitions, and risk management and investigation services.
