Simon Bodsworth, managing director, Daval

Yorkshire-based designer and manufacturer of quality fitted furniture, Daval Furniture, has scooped “Highly Commended” at Insider’s 7th annual Made in Yorkshire Awards 2019, awarded in the “Manufacturing Innovation Award” category.


Rewarded for its exclusive Option-i production technology, Daval introduced this manufacturing process for the sole benefit of maintaining high levels of innovation and creation for its customers, and the Made in Yorkshire Awards 2019 acknowledged this market power by honouring Daval Furniture with a “Highly Commended” award classification.


Since the launch of option-i over a decade ago, Daval has made and delivered 20,000 bedrooms and 5,000 kitchens and the main benefit of option-i for its customers, is the freedom this exclusive process brings. Homeowners can order what they want, rather than be dictated by only ‘stock solutions’: further validating how consumer-friendly and highly economical this established system is.


Providing the utmost flexibility back to the customer, option-i has increased efficiency and automation for Daval, saving both time and money for everyone involved! Combined, both the implementation and ongoing advantage of option-i has enabled Daval to launch new furniture solutions to the market 50% quicker than before: and its latest will hit UK customers in summer 2019.


Simon Bodsworth, managing sirector at Daval, said: “To be acknowledged with ‘Highly Commended’ status by the Made in Yorkshire Awards 2019 is a massive reward for the brand and huge personal achievement. We are extremely proud of this honour and grateful to all our customers who help sustain our company headquarters in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and allow us to continue influencing the future of quality fitted furniture made in Britain.”
