Bespoke joinery business goes into administration


A Wotton-under-Edge building and joinery business has gone into administration, today.

Chappell & Dix Ltd have been undertaking all aspects of building work and bespoke joinery for more than 40 years, but the current economic downturn has forced the respected business to go into administration despite efforts to secure new investment to keep the business afloat.

A Stroud Times reader, who is currently having work done on her property, said: “We’ve been left in the lurch – the building work is far from completed and we paid a large deposit, so we’re concerned how this will leave us.”

An email sent to customers, said: “I am extremely sorry and very sad to advise you that our endeavours to secure additional investment or new ownership since then have not succeeded, and that because of this we have been left with no alternative but to place the Company in Administration today.

“The Directors have explored every avenue to avoid this situation however as explained in my previous email we have been unable to overcome the severity of the current economic downturn, so soon after the global pandemic and the legacy problems that this caused the company. 

“Administrators Neil Vinnicombe and Paul Wood of Begbies Traynor (Central) LLP will be writing to creditors in due course and within seven days of their appointment.

“No company staff are available to answer phones or respond to email enquiries.”
