A Portishead bicycle maintenance and repair business went into liquidation and went out of business. Haiko Cycling Limited, which previously traded as Mike’s Bikes (Portishead), operated from a unit on Harbor Road and was run by director Benjamin Jonathan Sachs.
The company has appointed Cornwall Purnells insolvency practitioners Lisa Alford and Chris Parkman as liquidators. An announcement on the public archives website The Gazette said at a meeting earlier this month, Haiko Cycling confirmed that it could not, due to its responsibilities, continue its activities and that it was “advised” to voluntarily liquidate the company.
The news comes just weeks after Haiko Cycling announced plans on Facebook to relocate from its Portishead site and move to a new outlet on Wild Country Lane in Long Ashton in March. The company also planned to launch a new website that would allow customers to pre-book maintenance.
