UK’s largest wholesaler collapses

Palmer and Harvey (“P&H”), an East Sussex-based wholesaler, entered administration on 28 November 2017. With over 90,000 customers and 3,400 employees, P&H is Britain’s larger delivered wholesaler.

After being hit by challenging trading conditions throughout recent months and unsuccessful attempts to restructure the business, PwC was appointed administrator. The Company has now ceased trading and 2,500 of the P&H Group’s 3,400 employees have been made redundant.’
