Wad of cash

Hundreds of trade creditors have been left a total of £1.2m out of pocket by the collapse of Hampshire-based M&E firm SEC Ltd.

The firm’s largest unpaid bill was £61,857.84 owed to fellow building services contractor Comfort Controls in Hertfordshire, according to a creditors report filed at Companies House by administrator SFP.

Other unpaid creditors include Wolseley (£18,747.40), Vodafone (£2,708.59) and Bosch (£791.49).

SEC specialised in high voltage industrial installation and maintenance jobs and worked for clients including the MoD, health authorities, councils and universities, before falling into administration on 19 July.
