By an order issued on 13 November 2018, the Local Court of Detmold has appointed Mr Stefan Meyer from PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH as the provisional insolvency administrator for ZERTEX Zerspanungstechnik Extertal GmbH & Co. KG.
ZERTEX only supplies its goods to manufacturers and their suppliers in the capital goods industry. The company’s core competence is to produce high-precision workpieces, parts and assemblies for the mechanical engineering sector as well as drive, measurement and control equipment for almost all industrial areas. The order situation of the company is very good; most of the time they operate in three shifts. ZERTEX has its own production facilities, warehouses and offices on their own plot of land.
Together with his team, the attorney Mr Stefan Meyer has already obtained an initial overview of the company’s situation on site. The PLUTA restructuring expert said, “We will continue the full scope of business operations. The company will complete all existing orders according to plan and will also accept new orders from their customers.” The objective of the provisional insolvency administrator is to restructure the company so that it has good prospects of a successful future.
Most recently, ZERTEX generated annual revenues of around 3.1 million euros. The reason for filing for insolvency is liquidity problems, which have been aggravated in recent weeks and finally made this step unavoidable.
The attorney Mr Stefan Meyer will arrange for the pre-financing of the insolvency substitute benefits as soon as possible, which will ensure that employee wages and salaries are guaranteed for a period of three months. The Extertal-based company has a workforce of 40 employees. On 14 November 2018, a staff meeting took place in which the employees were informed of the situation.
