Vale Bridgecraft today reflects 146 years of quality furniture manufacturing and, as in the past, means people passionate about upholstery, determined to offer the kind of special quality that remains (as the old saying goes) hard to define but easy to recognise.
Vale Upholstery was established in the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1947 by a Mr & Mrs Lomax who worked originally under Utility restrictions, re-covering furniture and then creating their own simple pieces. The business was based in Vale Mill, Todmorden, the location giving the company its name. The couple grew the business drawing from the long established craftsman skills in joinery and textiles that the region is famous for as well as a heritage of fine furniture making.
In 1962 Vale Ltd. had grown to around 40 staff and moved to Halifax Road, Todmorden, this old mill building providing the perfect location and, with its huge windows and light airy surroundings, helped the burgeoning business grow even further.
In 1982 Vale moved to its present location, Mytholmroyd near Hebden Bridge. This bigger mill used to house the Moderna Blanket business and now provided the space for a workforce that had grown to 60. By the millennium, Vale, which was now combined with the Bridgecraft brand had a workforce of over 100.
