Yorkshire-based furniture manufacturer Daval has been shortlisted for no less than three regional business awards.

The Made in Yorkshire Awards are said to celebrate world-class companies based in Yorkshire and Humberside. In these awards, Daval has been shortlisted for the Manufacturer of the Year Awards (under £25 million). It is one of four finalists, which has been selected as having demonstrated excellence and made an outstanding contribution to the manufacturing sector in the region. The winner will be announced at a black-tie event at New Dock Hall in Leeds on March 7.

The other two awards that Daval has been shortlisted for are in the Yorkshire Business of the Year Awards. The awards are Family Business and Innovation.

The shortlisted companies undergo a rigorous judging process. Daval was visited by members of the judging panel in October, when the senior management were asked to do a presentation on why they should win the award. The winners will be announced on February 27 at the Queen’s Hotel, Leeds.

Commenting on being shortlisted for the three awards, Daval managing director Simon Bodsworth said: “We have always been a proud ambassador for the entire Yorkshire region, so it’s a huge privilege to have our work recognised three times, at two prestigious regional awards. As a family-owned business for over 40 years, it’s no surprise that our furniture collections are steeped in British heritage, with each range and choice of quality raw materials offering a strong sense of connection to our hometown of Huddersfield. 2024 is set to be a big year for Daval, with a host of new furniture innovations for the kitchen, bedroom and living space coming soon.”

Design director James Bodsworth added: “We would like to wish all awards finalists the very best of luck as we come together to help shine a light on Yorkshire. Quality, innovation, family, and community remain key pillars of our brand, as we continue to empower our team of expert furniture designers, growing network of 100+ retail partners and loyal customer base in the UK. We are truly honoured to celebrate our passion for design with our customers across the region and prove that a passion for design and true Yorkshire grit should never be underestimated.”
