The company thanked customers for their loyal service over the years, and said it is working to “assess whether we can sell the business and its assets as we are eager for there to be continuity”, inviting interested parties to get in touch for details.

Included in the sale will be the Superchips branding and associated domain names, a library comprising 3700 remap files and 80 worldwide garages trained to carry out Superchip services.

The company’s Buckinghamshire offices and workshops are available as part of separate negotiations.

On 23 March, a statement from Managing Director Ian Sandford advised that, following the government’s imposition of a lockdown, the company had taken the decision to temporarily close from 25 March.
