Somerset caravan dealership goes into administration

A caravan dealership near Taunton has gone into administration due to severe cash flow problems.

Somerset Caravans at Walford Cross employs 21 staff, 16 of whom have been retained while administrators Begbies Traynor look for a buyer.

The problems were said to have arisen from the general economic climate and difficulties in production and supply.

Joint administrator Ian Walker said the intention was to sell the business as a going concern.

"It is a good business which offers not just caravans but a whole range of camping supplies and therefore is in a position to take advantage of the growing trend for family camping and caravanning holidays in the South West," Mr Walker said.
