Nilorn, a Sweden-headquartered branding and design firm is setting up a 15,000 sq ft North Yorkshire base, which will serve as the company’s UK head office. Signing the deal to bring Nilorn to the mixed-use Motor Works scheme in Cononley was property developer Candelisa.
“We are delighted to have concluded this deal with Nilorn which will provide a major boost to the local economy and create potential employment opportunities,” said Guy Taylor, Candelisa Managing Director.
The new site is being built specifically for Nilorn and is part of the wider £30 million Motor Works development, which also includes the conversion of the former Green’s Mill into 51 apartments and the construction of 46 homes on brownfield land.
Moreover, the Motor Works project also includes the proposed Anley Crag Business Park, which could go before local planners as early as August. If approved, the Business Park will deliver 137,000 sq ft of commercial space and a further 19 residential units.
“We have evidence that the creation of an environmentally conscious, sophisticated business park at Anley Crag will attract similar professional businesses, making it a great working environment and offering a fantastic work life balance,” said Guy.
“The scheme is also critical to Craven’s commitment to provide opportunities for talented professionals to live, work, and remain in the rural North and help retain the vibrancy of the Yorkshire Dales National Park,” he added.
The office for Nilorn is due to be completed in early 2019.
