Anglian Blows In to Save The (Safestyle) Day

The joint administrators of Safestyle UK have reached an agreement to sell the company’s order book, as well as certain other assets, to Anglian Home Improvements.

Officially, Safestyle UK was a trading name of HPAS Limited. Anglian Home Improvements previously traded as trading as Anglian Windows Ltd.

While the terms of the agreement are finalised and any legal requirements are fulfilled, the joint administrators have entered into a sub-contractor arrangement that will enable customer orders to be fulfilled by Anglian Home Improvements. This will ensure all Safestyle UK customers thatmight have suffered after Safestyle’s insolvency will have the opportunity to have their home improvement projects carried out in full.


Hapless HPAS

Rick Harrison and Will Wright from Interpath Advisory were appointed joint administrators to HPAS Limited, trading as Safestyle UK, Style Group Holdings Limited and Style Group UK Limited on 30 October 2023.

Following the Group entering into insolvency, customers were advised that orders would not be fulfilled while the administration progressed – and that although the administrators were exploring the possibility of selling certain business and assets to a third party, it was unlikely.

They have done a remarkable job to form an interim sub-contract agreement that  will enable Safestyle UK customers to arrange completion or fulfilment of their orders by Anglian. This includes those customers who were mid-way through the installation process, as well as customers who had booked an installation with Safestyle UK.


 “We understand the uncertainty felt by customers following Safestyle UK falling into administration. This agreement with Anglian Home Improvements gives those customers the certainty and peace of mind that their home improvement projects can now be completed.”

Anglian Home Improvements

Peter Mottershead, executive chairman of Anglian Home Improvements, says: “We were keen to support in what we know is a very difficult situation and so hope that this will go some way towards alleviating the concern and burden on those Safestyle UK customers who were worrying about their projects.

“Our customer service teams will be making contact with customers in the coming days and weeks to arrange completion of orders, prioritising those who were part-way through the installation process. I can also confirm that Anglian will honour the terms of the contract, including the price, that had previously been agreed with each customer.”


Picture: A window to salvation has opened up a brighter outlook for customers who thought they would be left high and dry following the demise of Safestyle UK.
