Manufacturer to bed down at 38,000 sq ft industrial unit

MA Living, a West Yorkshire-based maker of handcrafted beds, has purchased 38,000 sq ft of industrial and warehouse accommodation at the Treefields Industrial Estate in Gildersome.

The business has acquired the property from a private vendor to facilitate future business growth.

The company, which has been established for over 40 years, is due to move into the premises later in 2021 once extensive refurbishment works are completed.

Uneeb Akbar, managing director of MA Living, said: “We are extremely proud of our achievements and very optimistic about our growth plans in the coming years.

“The furniture industry is booming, we are excited about the new opportunities coming our way.

“This will open up many job opportunities within the Leeds City Region. We have the best design team working tirelessly to ensure we are able to move in very soon.”

Philip Caspell, of Holder & Co, who brokered the sale, added: “Despite being in the midst of a national lockdown it is greatly encouraging to see local businesses such as MA Living growing and expanding and underlining their commitment to the area.”
