The former Oakworth Joinery site in Keighley is up for sale after Manchester-based asset recovery and insolvency support group Winterhill Largo was appointed LPA receiver.
The site was home to Keighley’s second largest employer, Oakworth Joinery, which after almost 50 years of manufacturing windows and doors in the town, collapsed in February 2012 with the loss of 170 jobs.
The Oakworth Joinery premises cover 345,000 sq ft and are situated on an 11 acre site on Royd Ings Avenue in Keighley.
David Currie, Winterhill Largo director, said:
The Oakworth Joinery site is a substantial industrial property which has played a unique role in the industrial heritage of Keighley. The site would be ideal for sub division but would also appeal to a larger occupier, or to a commercial or industrial developer, as it has great development potential.
We are currently talking to a number of interested parties. It would be excellent to see a site that for many years home to one of Keighley’s biggest employers, brought back to life and become a thriving workplace once again.

Winterhill Largo operates from six UK offices in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Wakefield, Horsham and Blackburn, in addition to five overseas offices. The company now employs over 70 staff.
