dodgy helmet supplier 'permanently closed'

Nantwich-based Quads Inn, a mail-order purveyor of quad, motorcycle and motocross accessories, which was heavily fined in July 2017 for selling sub-standard helmets, has “permanently closed”, according to Google. BDN has tried to contact Quads Inn but the phone has been disconnected.

Hough Mill Developments – the company behind Quads Inn – was convicted of three counts of selling unsafe goods after an investigation by Cheshire East Trading Standards. The company was fined a total of £15,000 for the offences and £25,000 in costs. Hough Mill Developments director Roydon Wiggins was also fined £1200 with £25,000 costs after being personally convicted of three counts of selling the defective helmets.

Quads Inn’s Qtech-branded lids came to the attention of Cheshire East Council Trading Standards after a female scooter rider was involved in a low-speed road accident and her helmet shattered upon impact.

Companies House says Hough Mill Developments is still active and listed Qtech (International) Products as a person with significant control on 2 September. Roydon Wiggins is still a director.
