UK’s largest independent window and door manufacturer Oakworth Joinery enters administration

THE UK’S largest joinery business has entered administration with P&A Partnership administrators appointed.

John Russell and Chris White, both partners at the P&A partnership, were appointed joint-administrators to Oakworth Joinery, the UK’s largest independent window and door manufacturer.

The West Yorkshire-based business employs about 170 people and is the second biggest employer in the area.

Russell (pictured) said: “Unfortunately Oakworth is a victim of the continuing downturn in the construction sector and of difficulties in accessing finance for new machinery.

“Oakworth’s directors have tried their hardest to keep the business trading profitably and took appropriate professional advice early on in order to give the business the best chance of survival.”

The company managed to found a buyer but the deal fell through last week, causing the business to enter administration.
