IDMH was formed in November after Ideal Modules, marketed as Ideal Modular Homes, in Liverpool took office on account of £ 7.5million. IDMH bought the business and assets as part of a “pre-pack” sale, which is organized before the original business collapses.

Directors Andre Muller and Thomas White were transferred to the new company in a deal that saved 76 jobs. Directors said in December that unsecured creditors could only expect 2.5 pence on every £ 1 owed.

In a report, they say that at the start of the pandemic, the company “had to go out of business for several months due to the nationwide lockdown” and took steps to cut costs.

The houses are made in sections and glued together on site.

Joint agents Knight Frank and CPP have secured the lease for IDMH.
