The property firm which owns the historic Dalton Mills in Keighley has appointed administrators.
Lyn Vardy and Toby Underwood from PwC have been appointed joint administrators of Wakefield-based Magna Holdings Ltd and Magna (Yorkshire) Investments, chaired by former Yorkshire Forward chairman Terry Hodgkinson.
The two companies operate three multi-let office sites in Yorkshire, including the grade II-listed Dalton Mills, which Magna has owned since 2004 and failed to sell at auction in 2011. The administrators have kept on the comapny’s five employees.
Lyn Vardy said: “The directors have been working with the secured creditor over a number of months to resolve the companies’ financial difficulties. However, they have been unable to secure alternative funding.”
