Gordon MacLure, restructuring partner at Johnston Carmichael, has been appointed as liquidator of the vehicle accident repair company, Smart Refinishers (Aberdeen) Limited.

The company, which operated from premises in Kirkhill Industrial Estate, Dyce, Aberdeen, provide vehicle accident repair services to commercial businesses and private individuals.

The Liquidator has made all 17 of the company’s employees redundant.

Gordon MacLure, said: “Smart Refinishers (Aberdeen) Limited is a long-established business having traded for more than 25 years, and which at one stage employed 33 people.

“Our immediate focus is to ensure that the employees of the company receive their entitlements as soon as possible, and we are liaising with government agencies including PACE to ensure these employees receive all possible support at this difficult time.

“In common with many businesses in the north-east of Scotland in recent years, Smart Refinishers (Aberdeen) encountered cashflow difficulties rising from ever-increasing overheads and reduced margins. The company’s managing director, Evan Smart, has also suffered health issues which impacted on the operation of the business.

“With these factors considered, Mr Smart concluded that it was not sustainable for the company to continue trading and regretfully took the decision that the company should be wound up.”
