Yorkshire haulier to be liquidated after quarry runs out of stone

  • By Chris Tindall

A West Yorkshire family haulier has entered liquidation after the quarry it serviced ran out of stone.

Eliot Smith in Halifax was formed more than 35 years ago and specialised in landfill and quarry haulage and tipping.

Sole director Gordon Smith said the business didn’t recover after the local stone ran out and the haulage side went quiet.

“My son is carrying on in a small way, with one wagon,” he said. “But I’m now retired at 66. It’s just one of those things, you don’t plan for it. It’s a sign of the times. It’s very, very tight in quarry haulage.”

At its height the company employed 15 wagon drivers, landfill and machine operators and had contracts with Pipeline Construction.

Insolvency practitioner Jeremy Bleazard from XL Business Solutions was appointed as liquidator on 27 September.
