More than 200 jobs saved by sale of South West catering business

Michelmores recently acted in connection with the sale of a Bridgwater-based catering business, resulting in more than 200 jobs being saved from redundancy.  Anna Thompson, Sacha Pickering and Charles Maunder of Michelmores' insolvency team were instructed by Ian Walker and Chris Norman of Begbies, the joint administrators of Pro Serv Corporate Limited.  The company provided catering services to a range of customers, including schools in Somerset, Devon and Cornwall.  The business was sold to Taylor Shaw Limited.

Charles Maunder, head of Michelmores' Banking, Restructuring and Insolvency group said:

"We are delighted to have been involved in the sale of Pro Serv's business, particularly as the sale should safeguard so many jobs.  In addition, we were able successfully to conclude the sale before the commencement of the new school year, ensuring continuity of provision of school dinners for thousands of pupils across the South West."
