Kleenmaid liquidators have completed the sale of both the EDIS spare parts and Kleenmaid Customer Solutions (KCS) service and maintenance businesses for an undisclosed amount.
“These transactions have helped to secure the jobs of 16 EDIS employees who are responsible for ensuring spare parts are available for the half a million Kleenmaid appliances currently installed across Australia,” said Deloitte partner Richard Hughes.
“The sale of KCS will enable up to 30 service van franchisees to continue to operate and provide valuable maintenance and repairs support to Kleenmaid customers.”
Hughes thanked EDIS employees who worked hard to keep the spare parts business going in difficult circumstances until the sale was complete.
“Due to the support of several key parties including the main secured creditor of Kleenmaid, Westpac Bank, these businesses have been sold as going concerns and customers will continue to have access to essential spare parts and maintenance support for their appliances,” said Hughes.
KCS has been acquired by Aussie Whitegoods Rescue (AWR), while EDIS will be continued by Edis Pty Limited, a new company associated with Stokes (Australasia) Limited.
