It has been confirmed that the two directors behind the Kleenmaid collapse, Andrew and Bradley Young, were found removing documents from the company’s head office. Fearing for their safety, the administrators called for police assistance.

Deloitte administrators, John Greig, David Lombe and Richard Hughes, revealed on Friday that police assistance was sought as a consequence of Andrew and Bradley Young attempting to remove Kleenmaid records from the Maroochydore head office, without the consent of the administrators.

“The administrator’s staff were stopped from reviewing the records that the directors sought to remove from the office and became concerned for their safety and called police,” Deloitte said in a statement.

“The police remained at the Maroochydore head office until the directors left the premises.”

Deloitte emphasised that it did not willingly allow any company records to be taken from the premises and the issue has been reported to ASIC and the police for further investigation.

This issue is just another addition to the growing list of questionable practices by the Kleenmaid organisation and its directors.
