    I have been in contact with the company and this is the email that i got back from them! so dont need to worry now.



    Hi Richard,

    The rumours are not true.

    We are very much in business and have just relocated to new and larger premises on Knowsley Industrial Estate just off the M57.

    Please feel free to visit us or take a look on our Website for special offers and for new and exciting products we will be bringing out in the near future.



    Best Regards

    Right, not trying to stir things up here but a bit of honesty to make sure any customers are protected if purchasing through the above site brodexbms.co.uk.

    This site is owned by Bordex Machines Services which are in liquidation as per below notice, however liquidation can also mean distribution of assets so they could have moved their assets to their new trading name.

    If the site has been transferred to Brodex Systems Limited then you will be safe. If the site sits with Brodex Machine Services then there could be a big problem. It would be silly of the appointed liquidators ICS to keep it open unless there is stock to cover the sales.

    Buying direct through Brodex Systems Limited you should be safe. Buying through the website I would strongly advise contacting ICS to see who owns the website as I would hate to see people lose their money.

    From a legal point I don't know how they could transfer the website to their new trading name as that is an asset of Brodex Machine Services. I may be mistaken but this is just advise so please double check with ICS if anyone is going to purchase anything.

    Unless John can fully explain where the assets are this is the advise I would give. It's a great shame things like this happen but shows how tough this market is.

    I had the same email but seems very strange how they are now trading under a new name brodex systems Ltd which was incorporated only in june this year. If you think I'm worried rc then I'm not as would not buy anything from them anyway.

    One things for sure, you wouldn't wind a company up just to move to new premises. Be careful guys.

    Brodex over the years have changed names more than twice so seems to me have got into trouble more than once.

    Just going by recent posts about how many ppl have been messed about by brodex it's a sure sign to me that they are in dia finacial trouble. Simples...

    so because they have changed there name it means they are in trouble? not always. when we expand my business next year, we will be changing the company name.
