GV&Co advises Wow Lifestyle on the acquisition of new Bradford manufacturing base

Bradford-based Wow Lifestyle, trading as Wow Sleep, which manufactures beds and mattresses for leisure and hospitality sector clients such as Haven Holidays, Parkdean Resorts, Butlins and Scape student accommodation, is relocating its manufacturing base within the city.

 

The firm, which employs 22 people in Bradford, is moving from its 20,000 sq ft premises at Wyke Mills and has acquired the historic 36,500 sq ft Stone Hall Mill in the Eccleshill area. GV&Co acted on behalf of Wow in its purchase of the property.

 

Paul Mack, a director at GV&Co, said: “We were pleased to have advised Wow Lifestyle on this strategic relocation to a larger and permanent manufacturing and warehouse premises, which will enable the business to continue to grow.”

 

Property consultant Eddisons handled the sale of the building.

Wow Lifestyle managing director, Darren Stega-Jones, said: “We are really keen to stay in Bradford after 15 years in the city. Having our own larger building means we can put down more permanent roots and will enable us to invest in sustainability and to switch to using renewable energy.

 

“We have just appointed one new experienced upholsterer to our team and have plans to create further new jobs in the coming months as we develop and expand our product range.”

 

The four-storey Stone Hall Mill was built around 1850 and was originally used as a woollen mill.

 

Following a refurbishment programme, Wow will use its new premises to manufacture its range of beds and mattresses.

 

Eddisons acted jointly for the vendor with Bradford property agent Sharma Williamson.
