MANY of the UK and mainland Europe’s largest carpet, wood and vinyl floorcoverings suppliers are owed money by Broxbourne Flooring Limited, which was placed into liquidation last month.

Richard Long of Richard Long & Co was, mid-November, appointed liquidator of the Hertfordshire company, which traded from a showroom just off the M25 and supplied and installed flooring for both commercial contracts and residential customers.

Statutory filings show Unilin Distribution, owner of the Quick-Step smooth flooring brand, listed as being owed £29,891, with Mercado (£37,029) owed the most of a number of Headlam Group Plc subsidiaries listed as creditors. Victoria Plc companies are also owed five-figure sums combined, as are LVT companies Amtico (£14,182) and Karndean (£11,819). Columbia Flooring is listed as being owed £50,000.

Broxbourne Flooring Limited shares a director in common with Teckfloor Limited and UK Flooring Online Limited. The company’s statement of affairs shows Teckfloor as being owed £9,531 with UK Flooring Online not listed as being owed anything. Instead, it is named among Broxbourne Flooring’s assets, with a book value of £51,349.

The total creditor shortfall is listed at £380,944.
