All 12 jobs have been saved at Unisurf Engineering after the Bradford-based business was bought out of administration with advice from Irwin Mitchell’s insolvency team.

The Sheffield law firm help set up the sale of the business as a going concern to WM Hardill Ltd of Batley.

Unisurf Engineering, established in 1972, specialises in the manufacture, production and renovation of components used in sectors from Formula 1 to newspapers and sewage treatment.

Philip Deyes and Sean Williams of Leonard Curtis Business Solutions Group were the appointed administrators.

The sale to WM Hardill secures all jobs at the business and it will remain at its current base at Barnard Road in Bradford.

Tom Paton, a solicitor in Irwin Mitchell’s Sheffield-based Insolvency team who worked on the deal alongside the administrators, said: “We are delighted to have provided support on this deal and helped achieve a going concern sale.”

Funding by invoice finance company, ABN Amro helped pay wages.
