Mazars Appointed Administrators of J Bryan (Victoria) Ltd

5 July 2017

Patrick Lannagan and Conrad Pearson at international accountancy firm Mazars have been appointed Joint Administrators of J Bryan (Victoria) Ltd.

J Bryan (Victoria) Ltd, a demolition business, traded from premises in Widnes with 56 employees.   The Company ceased to trade, prior to the Administrators’ appointment, on 30 June 2017 and all employees were made redundant on that date.

Patrick Lannagan commented “The Company experienced cash-flow difficulties as a result of costs and losses incurred following the well-publicised issues with the demolition of tower blocks in Seaforth last year. This position was compounded in recent months as a result of a downturn in contracted work and, as a result, the director took the decision that the Company should enter Administration. The Administrators will now proceed with realising the Company’s assets, including the Company’s freehold premises in Halebank, Widnes, and welcome any interest that may be forthcoming in those.”
