BBC show goes inside HSL

Batley-based furnituremaker HSL is set to feature on BBC’s Inside the Factory, presented by Gregg Wallace (pictured) and Cherry Healey, on Sunday 18th February at 8pm on BBC Two (and iPlayer).

Gregg explores the factory in West Yorkshire to find out how the company makes over 5000 sofas every year.

The site has 250 staff dedicated to furnituremaking, and the programme will offer a behind-the-scenes view of the manufacturing process at the family-run factory, where every chair and sofa is custom made. 

Also featuring in the hour-long programme will be interviews with the HSL staff responsible for the company’s reputation for quality, including craftspeople with decades of experience handcrafting specialist chairs, sofas and beds. 

HSL MD Venessa Hodgson says: “We’re absolutely delighted to be featured on Inside the Factory. Dedication to craftsmanship, quality and customer satisfaction has always been at the heart of our approach at HSL, and we can’t wait to welcome the public into the home of feel good furniture to see what goes on behind the scenes.

"We’re thrilled that the talent of all of our craftsmen and women will be on display, giving them the recognition they deserve.”
