Oakworth Joinery went into administration last Friday and its closure will result in the loss of 170 jobs at the UK’s largest independent door and window manufacturer.
Joint administrator John Russell of The P&A Partnership said: “The business has been loss making with a declining order book for some time.
“Unfortunately, we have been unable to secure trading terms with Oakworth’s major customer who accounted for almost 75 per cent of orders.
“It is a huge blow to the workforce – many of whom have worked for Oakworth for a number of years.
“We will be onsite assisting staff with claim forms for redundancy payments and other entitlements.”
The administrators are now looking to sell Oakworth’s assets, including equipment.
