Strong interest is expected at a high profile former boat building complex in Kidderminster
Sealine International ceased trading in Kidderminster earlier this year after it collapsed into administration in April.
The closure of the business after 41 years in the town saw the loss of nearly 300 jobs.
The Sealine name was sold to a pan-European investment company, leaving the premises on Whitehouse Road vacant.
Joint agents Jones Lang LaSalle and Harris Lamb have been instructed by the administrators to dispose of the freehold interest of the 11.38 acre site, which comprises buildings totalling around 260,000 sq ft.
Vicky Beach from Jones Lang LaSalle said: “The premises are being offered as a whole or as three separate parts and we are anticipating there will be a lot of firm interest from both local and national companies, in what is a prime position on the fringe of the town centre.
“Premises of this type and size with cranage and high eaves rarely come to the market and as the manufacturing sector is showing signs of a revival we believe there will be a number of competitive tenders for the premises. We hope to bring a positive conclusion to the final chapter in Sealine International’s closure.”
Jackie Bayliss from Harris Lamb added: “Clearly it is important for Wyre Forest District Council too, that such a prominent industrial complex attracts operators that can offer long term growth for the area after such a significant loss of jobs and we will be liaising closely with parties there in this respect.”
