Southampton contractor goes pop

13 Dec 12 Southampton building contractor Star Mechanical & Engineering Ltd has gone into administration with the loss of 21 jobs.

The company had been operating since 1999 but has now decided to cease trading.

Julie Palmer and Simon Campbell of Salisbury-based restructuring specialists Begbies Traynor were appointed administrators to the company on December 10.

Mrs Palmer said: “Some final completion works were carried out on a small number of contracts in the run-up to the administration order, but the employees have now been made redundant. The construction sector is particularly tough at the moment for sub-contractors and trading has been difficult for some time.”

The company had 21 employees and worked on a number of prestigious property developments in London for a variety of clients, the administrators said.
