Directors of graphics group Quarton Baldwin are proposing to put the consultancy into voluntary liquidation.
Shareholders are due to meet on 6 January to agree a resolution to wind up the company. A creditors meeting has been scheduled later the same day to appoint an official liquidator.
The move to liquidate comes just months after the departure of directors Mark Baldwin, who left to pursue a career in South Africa, and Gary Edwards, who now works at Progression Design and Print (DW 5 September).
A consultancy spokeswoman declined to comment on the reasons for the proposed liquidation and co-founder Chris Quarton, who signed the winding-up notice, was unavailable.
The most recent accounts filed at Companies House, for the year to 31 December 1996, show a poor performance from Quarton Baldwin. A major fire at its main premises added to what the chairman’s statement referred to as “a difficult year”, resulting in total losses of more than 20 000.
A company called Creative Communications is now operating from Quarton Baldwin’s former premises.
