Fallon folds

Midlands demolition firm appoints administrators.

In another sad turn of events for the UK demolition industry, DemolitionNews has learned that Redditch-based S Fallon and Sons (Contractors) – which trades as Fallon Group – has appointed administrators.

Full details of the company’s premature demise are not yet available; but DemolitionNews has been told that the appointed administrators – KJ Watkin & Co – issued redundancy notices to the company’s remaining staff almost a week ago. A meeting on the proposed liquidation of the company is scheduled for 11 November. DemolitionNews approached S Fallon and Sons but no-one was available to comment.

According to the company’s website, S Fallon and Sons could trace its history back some 40 years. During that time, the company has demolished single storey structures, high-rise buildings, warehouses, factories, petrol stations, residential properties, supermarkets and petrochemical plants.

The company’s collapse marks a sad day for the founders and directors. But the news is saddest of all for the S Fallon and Sons staff who now face an uncertain future amidst these challenging times and in the run-up to Christmas.
