ITV Grimefighters firm to close 21 May 2013

A cleaning company featured on ITV’s Grimefighters is to be wound up voluntarily by insolvency practitioners at Oldham-based firm Bridgestones.

Ace Cleaning Company Limited (ACCL) is to be wound up following a meeting of creditors which took place on 7 May 2013.

Jonathan Lord of Bridgestones is the insolvency practitioner appointed to handle the liquidation of the business.

The most recent annual accounts filed with Companies House show that the company had amounts falling due of £712,905 within one year as declared at the end of February 2012 against total current assets of £280,457.

Company directors Melvyn and Graham Booley have directorships of another cleaning company – The Cleaning Agency Limited.

Melvyn Booley is also a director of another company – Outland Projects Limited – together with Charles Hayward.

Coincidentally, Hayward started a similarly named company called Ace Cleaning Company (Leicester) Limited in April 2013.

The Booleys have previously held a string of directorships of other cleaning businesses, including G&M Cleaning Company Limited, G&M Janitorial Supplies Limited and Hockton Cleaning Limited.

Ace Cleaning has three offices in Coventry, Leicester and Tamworth offering cleaning services to businesses in the Midlands.

ACCL was incorporated in 1995, but Ace Cleaning Company in its former guise was originally founded in 1969, developing from an office window cleaning service business to all aspects of commercial and industrial cleaning.

Insolvency News has contacted both Ace Cleaning Company Limited and insolvency practitioner firm Bridgestones for comment on this story and has, so far, not received a response.
