MORE than 270 jobs have been saved after a Northwich firm went into administration before being bought out by a Halton-based company.

BDi Holding Group Ltd, based at Gadbrook Park, was put into administration by KPMG on Tuesday, September 2.

The firm - which runs six companies; BDi Holding Group Limited, BDi Cleaning Services Limited, BDi Contact Services Limited, BDi CCTV Limited, BDi NW Limited and BDi Commercial Services Limited - was looked after by Paul Flint and Brian Green from KPMG’s Restructuring practice in Manchester.

Together the companies, which are based in Northwich and which also have operations in Wakefield, operate a nationwide integrated Facilities Management business providing a full suite of support services including manned guarding, key holding, cleaning, CCTV installation and monitoring and waste management.

Immediately following the appointment of administrators, certain business and assets of all the companies were sold to Runcorn-based Select Security (Northwest) Limited, who will continue to service the customer contracts going forward.

As part of the sale, all 273 jobs have been preserved.

Paul Flint, associate partner at KPMG and joint administrator, said: “We are delighted to have been able to conclude a sale of the business and its assets immediately following our appointment, preserving almost 300 jobs and ensuring a continuity of service for customers.”

Good news. I was made redundant in 2009. Not a pleasant experience.
