THE former Safestyle UK premises in Wombwell have been sold to a Manchester-based company.

Hundreds of workers who were made redundant without any notice at the Safestyle site in October.

Glenbrook Investments has now acquired a 62,000sq ft industrial estate from the administrator of H.P.A.S Limited, formerly trading as Safestyle UK.

The site comprises 17 units across three terraces on a 4.5 acre self-contained site – and the sale also includes a 1.6 acre parcel of vacant land, providing options for future development or expansion.

The price of the site remains confidential but a guide price of £2.75m had previously been set.

Scott Griffiths, of Glenbrook Investments, said: “We are excited to add this to a portfolio of industrial repositioning projects that we have been carefully rebuilding following significant disposals in 2021 and 2022.

“We are very fortunate to have a great team and with live projects nearby, we have been able to make a quick start on site.

“We now look forward to bringing this estate back to life as a modern, sustainable destination for local businesses.”
