Midland International (Hire) Services Limited t/a Midland International Motorhomes (in liquidation)
John Rimmer and Peter Windatt were appointed as joint liquidators of Midland International Motorhomes in August 2013. The company had traded from premises on the outskirts of Coventry since the 1980s. The company initially offered marquee hire services but by a chance encounter in the USA the company moved into the business of importing and selling American and European motorhome vehicles. The company traded successfully throughout the 1990s and the 2000s and secured lucrative contracts with the sole UK selling rights to a number of American models. Unfortunately, due to the downturn in the UK economy and the resultant reduction in consumer spending, the company suffered. Numerous options were explored but it became apparent that the company had no alternative but to cease trading in order that the position did not worsen for the company’s creditors. The joint liquidators realised the company’s assets and are pleased to report that the preferential creditors (employee wage arrears and holiday pay) have been paid in full, the liability to the company’s bank has been discharged in full plus interest (thereby releasing the directors from any personal liability) and a dividend of 12.27 pence in the pound has been paid to unsecured creditors.
