Burberry to sell site as it abandons Leeds factory plans
Fashion giant Burberry has confirmed that it will not be moving manufacturing to a Leeds site, dropping plans to develop a 10-acre site next to Temple Works.
The factory would have been the Northern manufacturing base for its trademark trenchcoats, bringing production under one roof. The coats are currently made on two sites located in Castleford and Keighley, where production will remain.
The site would have allowed the company to hire another 200 people and triple production. It currently makes 5,000 a week in the UK.
