The jobs of more than 30 employees at Quorn Business Travel in Leicester which ceased trading earlier this month have been saved.


Hampshire-based Meon Valley Travel has bought the business travel specialist, which was forced to cease trading when its parent company THA Group fell into administration.


All 31 staff will keep their jobs and continue working out of Quorn Business Travel’s Leicester offices. Clients who had booked trips with Quorn Business Travel will travel as planned.


Meon Valley Travel managing director James Beagrie said: “We had always admired Quorn, so this was too good an opportunity to miss.


“We are running [Meon Valley and Quorn] as two separate businesses with shared best practice. They are an exceptionally talented team and they are delighted to have kept their jobs.”


The move brings Meon Valley Travel – which specialises in emergency medical travel, concierge services and out-of-hours help desks for travel management companies – to 64 staff.


Beagrie is planning to expand the business further and is looking at new opportunities.
