Devon Business goes into Administration after 180 Years

A building firm that can trace its roots back more than four generations to 1833 has gone into administration.

D W Hart and Son Ltd, a firm specialising in working with local people on building new kitchen extensions, bathrooms and loft conversions, are based in Hemyock in Devon. They have had a long and distinguished past and in recent years had grown to employ 50 staff.  Since the recession the firm has struggled to maintain profitability and called in the Administrator on advice from the bank.

David Kirk of Kirks is their Insolvency Practitioner. He said; “It is obviously sad when this happens. I spoke to all the staff on the 24th June to let them know what is happening. I am carrying on trading for a short while to finish two house extensions and various small works. I expect that trading will finally cease at the end of July and then there will be an onsite closing down sale.”
