Gordon MacLure and Matt Henderson, restructuring partners at Johnston Carmichael, have been appointed Administrators of the construction companies Alan Grant Grampian Limited and ACG Contracts Limited.
Both companies operated from offices at Main Street, Alford, Aberdeenshire with Alan Grant Grampian being involved in the construction of new homes, primarily for private individuals while ACG Contracts delivered civil engineering services to commercial, private and public sector organisations including local authorities.
The Administrators have made 14 of Alan Grant Grampian’s 19 employees redundant, while 19 of ACG Contracts’ 21 staff employees have also been made redundant. The remaining employees have been retained meantime to assist the Administrators.
Gordon MacLure said: “Alan Grant Grampian and ACG Contracts are long established businesses which, like many building contractors, have in recent years suffered from reduced margins and cashflow difficulties.
“Our immediate focus is on the employees of both companies and we will be liaising with government agencies including PACE to ensure they receive all possible support at this difficult time.”
