Provider of contract services, plant hire and haulage services enters voluntary liquidation

Lyndon Thomas, a provider of contract services, plant hire and haulage services to the construction industry, has entered voluntary liquidation.

The Northamptonshire firm provided heavy earthmoving equipment and skilled operators, and specialised in bulk earthworks and major civil, infrastructure and utilities projects.

According to reports from Construction Enquirer, the business’s issues were compounded by bad debts.

The company, founded in 2000, recently hit headlines after one of its hired excavators was used to demolish an 18th Century pub, Crooked House, in the West Midlands.

While the fire damaged venue had been given the go ahead by councillors to be made safe and debris removed, the digger, hired prior to the fire, was used to demolish the pub. The firm’s MD, Lyndon Thomas insisted the business has done nothing wrong, rather just hired out the equipment.
