Timber stable manufacturer Redmire Stables is under new ownership, after going into liquidation earlier this year.

When it ceased trading on 13 May, Redmire owed money to some customers who had paid for goods but not received them (news, 2 June).

Now it has been bought by a new company, Redmire Equestrian Ltd, and is trading from Alcester in Warwickshire.

New boss Martin Potter has six years’ experience in the equestrian building industry.

Gemma Kite, head of sales, said: “We are going to have to build up trust, so for the first six months we will not ask for a deposit on goods ordered.”

She said the firm is also keen to work with customers of the previous owners, although they have no responsibility for money owed.

A spokesman for the liquidators, RSM Tenon, said it was not yet known if customers would get their money back.
