The article reports that Wade Cabinet, a furniture manufacturer is to leave the top end, traditional reproduction cabinet market to concentrate on the middle market with imported products. It said not doing so would put the company at risk. Its Leeds, England-based factory will close by the end of April 2005, with the loss of 68 jobs. Wade Cabinet has stopped taking orders for the Traditional, Quercus and Metropolitan ranges. In August 2004, Wade attempted to return Leeds to the black by transferring machinery from its Gainsborough factory and expanding the mill and veneering plant to boost efficiency. But it was hit by a downturn in sales towards the end of last year.
