VB11 Ltd, trading as Vale Bridgecraft, is returning to the industry after a recent MBO.
Vale Bridgecraft is an established furniture manufacturer based in Mytholmroyd, West Yorkshire, which celebrated 75 years in the business this year. The company went into administration on 1st August 2022, and now plans to continue trading under its new ownership from today.
The manufacturer specialises in hand-crafted furniture, has a network of 250 retail partners across the UK, and will be reopening its flagship Mytholmroyd showroom in West Yorkshire, alongside a second showroom in Warrington, Cheshire.
Vale Upholstery was founded in 1947 in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, and the company acquired Barbreck furniture and grew into larger premises in 1982 when it moved to Greenhill Mills in Mytholmroyd. In 2000, the company bought Bridgecraft Furniture, formerly based in Leeds. Production was moved to Mytholmroyd, where it has since been based, and began trading as Vale Bridgecraft.
Jonathan Robinson, MD, Vale Bridgecraft, comments: “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. The support we have received from all our customers, retailers and suppliers is testament to a company with an undeniable industry reputation.
"We are all passionate about VaIe Bridgecraft continuing to trade and strongly believe there are opportunities for Vale Bridgecraft to explore new sectors, partnerships, and product ranges. Our core values as a company remain and we look forward to delivering exceptional furniture for customers to enjoy for years to come.”
