Management buy out saves arboriculture firm Man Coed

Three staff at arborists Man Coed, where 90 workers were made redundant in April, have stepped in to buy the company out of administration.

Man Coed offers specialised services in arboriculture, overhead power line engineering and grounds maintenance.

Man Coed directors Tony Jones, Martin Boardman and Andrew Rossiter have saved around 40 jobs after the MBO and have relocated from Mold to Deeside. Clients include Scottish Power and Welsh Water.

Technical director Boardman said the company was now bidding for new contracts in arboriculture, forestry and grounds and facilities management, nationwide.

Jones is new finance director.

Administrator was David Moore of Leonard Curtis.

Previous majority shareholder directors were Gerry and Paula Jewson.
