Four sites operated by Scuffs (Cosmetic Repairs) have been sold by the receivers Baker Tilly, brought in by the firm on November 29.
The sites are at Winterstoke Road, Bristol, Wednesbury, Gloucester and Reading. The Reading centre has been sold to Autotex and the other three to Gemini Accident Repair Centres. Scuffs' remaining four sites at Whitby Road, Bristol, Exeter, Cardiff and Ipswich have closed.
The site sale has saved 50 jobs, while the closures has meant 70 redundancies. (December 13, 2001)
