News: 50,000 sq ft ClicBox factory to open in Rotherham


BA Components, a market leading manufacturer of kitchen and bedroom doors and accessories in the UK and Irish furniture components industry, is to open a new factory in Rotherham.

Established in 1990 and operating from Cookstown in Co. Tyrone and Doncaster in Yorkshire, BA Components specialises in MDF wrapped mouldings and vinyl wrapped cabinet doors. It sends out over 70,000 doors a week and exports to 20 different countries.

The firm has recently taken on 52,000 sq ft of factory space at Barbados Way at Hellaby in Rotherham for its latest production facility.


BA Components has secured the rights to new furniture technology from fellow manufacturer, UNILIN. Uniclic, developed by UNILIN, allows to click various panels together without any tools. UNILIN made the strategic choice to hand over the sales and production to further focus on developing new technologies and improving existing product ranges.

BA Components recently signed a license agreement with UNILIN for the technology and will also take over and further continue the production and sales activities of ClicBox, a commercial range of components with Uniclic technology mainly used in kitchens.

The revolutionary new product makes kitchen cabinet assembly easier, requiring no tools, no fittings and no glue. Cabinets can be assembled five times quicker than normal.

Kieran McCracken, operations director at BA Components, said: "We are excited by both the challenge and opportunity this offers and would like to thank UNILIN for the manner in which the negotiations have been conducted, we are looking forward to further establishing the Uniclic for furniture products not only here in the UK but throughout our global sales network."

Investing in new premises, the manufacturer has also purchased the machinery used in the production of Uniclic for furniture. Preparation for production start-up is underway with the machinery installation and all associated works. A planning application for a new electricity substation for the premises has recently been submitted.

BA Components aim to begin production from the new ClicBox factory in July 2016.

The two bay warehouse with office accommodation was marketed for sale and to let by Knight Frank. The new owners will join the likes of Parker Hannifin Manufacturing, KP Nuts, Parseq and Pyronix at Hellaby.
