Windscreen repair firm stops trading with immediate effect
IF YOU had your van booked in with AutoWindscreens for a window repair or replacement, then you will need to look for an alternative supplier.
That was the advice on the AutoWindscreens website last night following the announcement that the windscreen repair company, had entered administration. The firm’s 1100 staff were told to stop working.
AutoWindscreens is the second largest windscreen repair company in the UK with a network of 68 fitting centres, 550 mobile units, a Birmingham-based distribution centre and a central call centre. With an annual turnover of £63m, the company served major motor insurers, many fleet businesses as well as sole traders.
According to Deloitte, which has been appointed to find a buyer for AutoWindscreens, the company had been implementing a major operational improvement plan, but IT system delays and lower than anticipated Q4 revenues had led to cash flow pressures.
