Maidenhead based scaffolding contractor Anglewest Scaffolding Ltd has called in liquidators.
Anglewest Scaffolding had been trading for over 30 years offering scaffolding and access solutions to the London, Southeast and the Home Counties.
The firm had worked on a number of high profile projects for construction giants in and around London including the Gherkin, London Bridge Station and Lords Cricket Ground.
Anglewest employed over 30 scaffolders and office staff who were unaware until this week of its financial position. Difficulties arose after a number of the firm’s projects and contracts were suspended or cancelled as a direct result of COVID-19.
Scaffmag understands FRP Advisory has been appointed liquidators.
As of yesterday (8 October), Uxbridge based PHD Access has stepped in to fulfil contractual obligations of the business and minimise disruption to Anglewest’s clients. The firm has also taken on some of Anglewest’s staff that were made redundant.
Danny Dwyer, Managing Director at PHD Access said: “Anglewest had an excellent reputation and employed many good people, however, Covid-19 and Brexit are having a significant impact on the construction industry and many scaffolding businesses are experiencing difficulties.”
