Noble Express Limited, the Northampton based supplier of catering equipment, cleaning chemicals and other non-food essentials to the hospitality industry, has been placed into administration.

The company has experienced difficult trading conditions over the past two years, which affected cash flow and led to the appointment of administrators PBC Business Recovery and Insolvency last week.

The full level of debt is being quantified and known creditors have been notified of the administration. However, appointed administrator Gavin Bates of PBC is hopeful that a buyer can be found, and procedures are in place for the company to continue trading at this time.  Gavin added “Noble Express is well-known in the industry and consequently this has generated some interest in the purchase of the business.  We remain hopeful that we can secure the right buyer and Noble Express will be able to continue to build its reputation in the hospitality sector.”

It has been necessary to make two staff redundant, but the remaining 5 staff have been retained to assist with continued trading under the management of the Administrators.

For businesses interested in purchasing Noble Express Ltd, please contact Gavin Bates at PBC directly on 01604 212150 or gavinbates@pbcbusinessrecovery.co.uk and a Sales Pack can be despatched.
