ABP Web administrators Duff & Phelps have been confirmed as the administrators for the remaining four Alderson Print Group companies.
A statement from the Molesey-based group last Friday confirmed that Alderson Brothers Printers, Alderson Digital London, Alderson Point of Sale, and Don Dawson PLC were all placed in administration on 14 September.
Joint administrators to ABP Web John Whitfield, Benjamin Wiles and Paul Clark have been unavailable for comment since their appointment on 31 August and it was initially unclear whether they had also been appointed to the other four trading companies.
However, an out of office email from one of Alderson's senior managers confirmed the appointment of Whitfield, Wiles and Clark to all five group companies.
The automated email included the following statement: "John Whitfield, Benjamin Wiles and Paul Clark were appointed Joint Administrators of Alderson Brothers Printers Limited, Don Dawson Plc, Alderson Point of Sale Limited and Alderson Digital London Limited on 14 September 2012 and were also appointed Joint Administrators of ABP Web Plc on 31 August 2012.
"Alderson Brothers Printers Limited, Don Dawson Plc, Alderson Point of Sale Limited and Alderson Digital London Limited are continuing to trade under the Joint Administrators supervision. The Joint Administrators act as agents for the Companies and without personal liability. They are all licensed by the Insolvency Practitioners Association."
PrintWeek expects to receive an official statement from the joint administrators later today.
A new company, HC 1194, incorporated on 5 September by Alderson Print Group chief commercial officer Tim Delahay, which also lists APG chief executive Amanda Syson as a director, is understood not to have any connection with APG, its assets or its subsidiaries.
