Shelf Interface factory on the market

Have your say

The Interface factory at Shelf which closed earlier this year with the loss of more than 100 jobs is up for sale.

The former carpet tile production and distribution premises at Shelf Mills, Wade House Road covers a near 15-acre site.

CBRE, a Leeds-based industrial agency has been instructed to market it for owner occupation or redevelopment as a potential multi-let industrial estate.

A rationalisation programme saw production moved to other European operations.

Interface will retain operations on part of the site, with occupation of the office headquarters from where administrative support, sales and marketing, and research and development will continue to be based.

CBRE spokesman Dave Cato said: “Shelf Mills has great potential for existing use or as a refurbishment programme. Furthermore, the complex offers the possibility of greater flexibility as, subject to planning, there may be scope to consider alternative higher land value uses for the site.”
