Central Colour has closed its doors, resulting in the loss of 19 jobs, and will be placed into liquidation.


Central Colour offered pre-press, print and post-press services in-house

Michael Roome and Dean Nelson of accountancy and advisory firm Smith Cooper have been nominated as liquidators of the Nottingham operation.

With a final decision on proceedings dated for 8 July, Roome confirmed to PrintWeek that Central Colour ceased trading on Wednesday 19 June, at which point 19 employees were made redundant.

He said the company was set to be placed into liquidation and its unencumbered assets would be sold on.

Central Colour offered pre-press, print and post-press services in-house, with its flagship device being a Ryobi Mitsubishi B1 V3000 LX six-colour press, bought for £1.5m in July 2015 when the company’s turnover and headcount stood at £3.5m and 28 staff respectively.

Its main phone number is no longer operational, though the website remains live. 

Roome said more information would be forthcoming when a SIP6 report has been issued and the company officially goes into liquidation.
