Excel Conversions out of business
Excel Conversions has gone into receivership with the loss of all jobs at the Doncaster factory.
The converter – which was selling LDV-based minibuses for Pelican Engineering at this year’s Euro Bus Expo – was being touted for sale by co-director Peter Vernon this summer. It is now being administered by James Annerson, of Seneca Insolvency Practitioners of Matlock.
Excel, built from the rump of Crystal Conversions, traded from a modern factory unit in Armthorpe. It celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and in May, Peter Vernon reassured buyers: “Customers have nothing to worry about. Excel is in a good position. It is profitable and has a good order book.”
At the time of going to press, Bus and Coach Buyer had been unable to speak to the directors – who include Matthew Flett and Shelley McQuade – or to Seneca IP.
