Vale Upholstery was founded in Todmorden, and the company later acquired Barbreck furniture and grew into larger premises in 1982 when they moved to Greenhill Mills in Mytholmroyd.

In 2000, the company bought Bridgecraft furniture and production was moved to Mytholmroyd, where it began trading as Vale Bridgecraft.

Jonathan Robinson, managing director of Vale Bridgecraft, said: “I have worked for the company for 37 years and I am proud to continue our journey in quality furniture manufacturing with new and exciting plans to grow.
