Frostholme Mill furniture manufacturing site and equipment on the market

Published on: 8th June 2017

A West Yorkshire furniture manufacturing site, including an extensive range of furniture manufacturing equipment, is being offered for sale.

The Frostholme Mill facility, based in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, extends over 125,000 sq ft on a 2.9 acre site, and is one of the largest furniture manufacturing sites in the UK. Formerly a cotton mill, the property has been used for furniture production for the past 50 years.

We have been appointed on behalf of the administrators of Nathan Furniture Ltd to manage the sale of the machinery and equipment.

Neil Simpson, partner in our machinery and business assets said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for an existing local or national furniture manufacturer, or a start-up, to acquire both a great facility and high quality equipment.

“Whilst the online auction of the equipment is set to close mid-June, there is the opportunity for a buyer to purchase the equipment pre-auction and occupy the building with incentivised lease rental rates.”

The auction, which includes over 500 lots of furniture manufacturing equipment, will close at 12pm on 14th June. For further information, interested parties should contact Neil Simpson on 0161 259 7057.

Going, going, gone

Mark Weston, partner in our machinery and business assets department explores the rise of online auctions and how they can facilitate greater returns. It is not unusual for companies to have unwanted or unused plant and equipment. For some it may be the result of voluntarily closing the business for retirement, whilst others may be introducing new methods of operation resulting in surplus equipment.  For decades, contractors have taken advantage of various methods of sale to dispose of such equipment and raise capital for reinvestment in new machinery, property or other assets. The most important thing of course is to find the best method to generate the highest returns – which is why it becomes important to enlist the services of a specialist machinery and business asset surveyor. Surveyors will have not just the knowledge, but also the insight and contacts to generate the highest possible price for sellers. Based on a wide range of factors including demand, condition, location and estimated value, they may use those relationships to arrange a private sale, or they may opt to sell in an auction.
