BRADFORD double glazing entrepreneur Mitu Misra was owed more than £10 million when his SafeGlaze UK business collapsed.

Niamac Developments, trading as SafeGlaze UK, was placed into administration in October with the loss of 132 jobs.

Documents from the administrators Armstrong Watson LLP show creditors were owed £15.3m in total with Mr Misra owed £10.5m, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs £1m, Northern Irish manufacturer Camden Group £2.5m and a total of 67 various other claimants £1.3m.

Camden, a County Antrim uPVC frame manufacturer, has reportedly had to cut dozens of staff after SafeGlaze’s collapse.

Warmseal came to the rescue of more than 2,000 customers of SafeGlaze UK when it went into administration on October 30. The home improvement specialist paid £5.5m to secure the order book. It is not known if this money was used to pay some of the creditors.

SafeGlaze, which was based in North Brook Street, off Shipley Airedale Road, designed, manufactured and installed UPVC windows and doors and had eight sites across the country.

It was set up by Mr Misra who founded his previous firm Safestyle and then floated that on the stock market in 2013.

Mr Misra recently branched out into movie making, financing his own film Lies We Tell starring Harvey Keitel and Gabriel Byrne.

At the time of the administration, SafeGlaze director Phil O’Malley said: “The business grew far in excess of the management’s and stakeholders expectations and more importantly than our key suppliers could service. Unfortunately the level of financial support required increased significantly because of the Company’s growth and the lack of constant supply from the main supplier of products.

“I would like to express my gratitude to the staff and our customers. I personally want to apologise to those suppliers adversely

The administrators’ document listed that SafeGlaze had just £240,000 in realisable assets, including £10,000 for office equipment, fixtures and fittings and £230,000 in bank accounts.

The other companies who were creditors included scaffolders, timber merchants, door and window manufacturers, Jewsons, Royal Mail and telecoms firms.

Among local firms which were listed as creditors are Arnold Laver (£4,577), trade waste company AWM (£72,810), City Glass of Usher Street (£6,976) and Sense Consulting of Pudsey (£22,500).
