North Vale Mills and Staff

North Vale Doubling Co. ltd is a family owned and managed textile business which was established in 1872. North Vale Mills in Bailiff Bridge was built by 3 brothers who left the family farming business in seek of their fortune and set up as cotton traders. They originally traded as the ‘Stott Brothers’ and undertook both spinning and twisting of cotton for the local weaving industry. During the war the services of North Vale were called upon to supply yarn for parachute manufacture.

The business was passed down through the generations, then in the 1940’s following a very difficult period of war and recession the business was re-named to North Vale Doubling Co. Ltd by Donald and Geoffrey Stott with the support of their father. Today the business is owned by Michael and Kath Airey. Kath is the eldest daughter of Donald Stott. Michael and Kaths daughter Suzanne and son Richard are also now actively involved in the running of the business. A true family affair.

North Vale Doubling co Ltd are members of the Chamber of Commerce, Federation of Small Business, the Calderdale & Kirklees Manufacturing Alliance and the Huddersfield Textile Society. In October 2013 North Vale was given the Silver award from the Environmental Business Pledge.
