Deep cleaning company Macdet enters provisional liquidation

Macdet Hygiene Services, a specialist ‘deep cleaning’ company, has gone into provisional liquidation.

Founded in 1988, the business had a £4m annual turnover and employed 104 workers across its Glasgow, Stoke on Trent and Luton offices.

The firm has ceased trading with immediate effect, with 99 staff being made redundant and just five remaining in the Glasgow head office to help liquidators wind the business down. The shutdown has been blamed on the loss of a major contract leading to cash flow issues.

Macdet provided a range of deep cleaning and hygiene services for floor coverings, kitchens, ventilation systems, water treatment systems, duct cleaning and cleaning high areas. Its 24/7 specialist services had public and private sector clients across the hotel, hospitality, retail, office, sport and leisure and industrial sectors.

Derek Forsyth, Head of Business Restructuring and Insolvency with Campbell Dallas, has been appointed provisional liquidator. He said: “Although [Macdet] had a strong foothold in the UK market, it had suffered from a recent downturn in work on a major contract, leading to serious cash flow problems. As such the only option was to place the company in liquidation.

“We will also be working closely with the Redundancy Payments Service and other agencies such as PACE in order to minimise the impact on the staff affected by the closure of the business.”
