Queen Management Services put into liquidation
Hamilton-based Queen Management Services Ltd is being wound up, and liquidators have been appointed.
Queen Management Services was one of the businesses that lost its office space in July 2016 when the Front Street building where it was based, which also housed Onion Jacks and Chewstick, was destroyed in a blaze.
Later that year it moved to new premises on Cedar Avenue, where it remained until mid-2018. However, a payment dispute with landlord Cedar Holdings Limited eventually reached the Supreme Court. In October, a civil judgment of $155,035, with costs on an indemnity basis, was ordered in favour of Cedar Holdings.
On January 17, an order was made by the Supreme Court that Queen Management Services be wound up, and Mark Allitt and Charles Thresh, of KPMG Advisory Ltd, were appointed as joint and several provisional liquidators of the company.
A spokesman for Cedar Holdings said it had made attempts to settle the dispute during the past few years before the matter had ended up in court.
A spokesperson for Queen Management Services said: “We can confirm that Queen Management Services Ltd has been put into liquidation. Any further comments are best provided by the liquidators, except to say that the owners are working with the liquidators and look forward to bringing the situation to an amicable resolution.”
