Fam­ily trans­port busi­ness fails

Balonne Beacon - - NEWS -

CHIN­CHILLA res­i­dent Selina Erb, a for­mer part­ner of Erb Brothers Trans­port, has de­scribed the com­pany’s liq­ui­da­tion as “dis­ap­point­ing”.

“A lot of peo­ple have been hurt by this,” she said.

“Erb Brothers Trans­port was such big com­pany in Chin­chilla, it was sad to see it go.”

Mrs Erb and her hus­band, Michael, are for­mer part­ners of Erb Brothers Trans­port, which went into liq­ui­da­tion ear­lier last month.

The cou­ple left the com­pany in May 2014, af­ter be­ing bought out by Michael’s brother, Warren, and his wife BJ.

“To this day, we are one of the cred­i­tors Erb Brothers Trans­port owes money to,” Selina Erb said.

The Chin­chilla com­pany owes cred­i­tors more than $3 mil­lion and has left 21 em­ploy­ees with­out jobs.
