In 2005 the factory shed over 200 jobs with the factory finally closing in 2006 with production being out-sourced to Eastern Europe. Shires Bathrooms was part of the larger Irish based firm Qualceram Shires, which went into administration in 2009 following a drop in the retail and construction market.
Was a good explore, despite it being almost completely stripped now. The maintenance department is pretty cool, lots of stuff remains however before we had chance to take any photos we got busted by the "demolition" contractors, who didn't really look like they were meant to be there either.

I really wish I'd been exploring a few years back whilst there was still plenty to see, as it looks like it used to be a good'un :(
