RIBQUEST LTD “The Facts”…
In 2006 the reigns were pulled in on Ribquest Ltd (Manchester) and marketing ceased, at this time all existing orders were completed to close there order book.
This was due solely to the parent company SUNQUEST pulling in its resources and concentrating on its core business which had its own problems. SUNQUEST later went into administration and were taken over in July 2007.
