Business collapse reveals untidy history

The liquidation of mining services outfit C&G Group Industries has revealed links between the Western Australian operation’s director, Christopher Skelly, and a messy business collapse in Christchurch New Zealand.

Heavy equipment hire group and C&G Group creditor, Queensland-based Orionstone, was behind the appointment of administrators Hall Chadwick and the business was subsequently put into liquidation in late May.

Hall Chadwick would not reveal what Orionstone was owed but it is understood C&G Group collapsed owing money to a number of other WA businesses.

Perth, Western Australia
It's amazing how someone with such a track record within the Commonwealth of countries is able to conduct a repeat exercise here in Australia. Hopefully the administrators and state officials are able to dig the truth out of this. There is a long lasting ripple effects from unscrupulous people cutting corners to make a quick dollar at the expense of everyone else. Families hurt, and long after the perpetrators are gone there will be people picking up the pieces left behind.
