Hi

Given the amount of mouldings that this company produced for Motorhomes (& probably caravans) does anyone who, if any, has taken over the buisness, or if the moulds have been bought by anyone?

I need a new shower tray for my Swift MH and I can find no recent references on 'tinternet.

Cheers

Andy

From Plastics and Rubber Weekly 25 Feb 2009

"Thompson Plastics (Hull) has been bought out of administration by Redspar, a newly-created company that includes some of the plants previous managers.

The firm, which made components for the caravan and automotive markets, was seen as an unlikely sale back in January, when Charles Escott of administrator PKF, suggested the Hull site might not be a viable stand-alone business.

However, work at the Hull plant is due to restart within days, according to Escott, with around a quarter of the firm’s original 200 staff re-employed."


I noticed when passing the other day that a lot of the buildings are for let or for sale, so it seems like they're downsized.
