Checksun NZ goes into liquidation

IT importer and wholesaler Checksun New Zealand has been placed in liquidation after it failed to appear at the court hearing of a liquidation application by industrial property firm Expedio Ltd.

At the Auckland High Court on 23 July, associate judge Anthony Christiansen authorised liquidation proceedings to commence and the Companies Office website shows the court assigned the liquidation to the government-run Insolvency and Trustee Service on the same day.

The Service says it shut the company down on 29 and 30 July.

Expedio’s lawyers filed to put Checksun New Zealand into liquidation after attempts to secure unpaid rent.

Solicitor for Expedio, Michael Sandelin, told Reseller News Expedio owns the building used by Checksun New Zealand and is owed $49,000 rent.

“We’ve taken this action because we’re just not getting anywhere,” Sandelin says.

The Court’s civil cases media enquiries liaison Nana Matenga says the proceedings were filed on 4 June and constitute a section 289 statutory demand under the Companies Act, whereby the liquidation application is heard in open court to give additional creditors the chance to apply to be party to the application.

A person who answered the phone number listed for Checksun told Reseller News that general manager Bond Pan was travelling overseas and there were no other Checksun staff available to comment. Pan has not returned Reseller News’ emails or messages.

Expedio is part of investment group Aventure.

Checksun was incorporated locally in 1995 and is part of a group of computer system and peripheral importers with branches in Taiwan, China, France and Australia.

Among the vendor partners displayed on its local website are Edifier, Kingston, D-Link, Harmon Kardon, Seagate, LG and Toshiba.
