Urban Cottage Industries Ltd

Urban Cottage Industries started life in 2007 as the Historic Lighting Company. Historic Lighting pioneered the industrial lighting aesthetic with light fittings salvaged from mills in the West Riding of Yorkshire before going on to be the first and then largest supplier of a comprehensive range of high quality, original lighting components. In 2010 Urban Cottage Industries rescued and subsequently acquired Airedale Products & Print Ltd, securing a new future for the UK's largest collection of 19th and early 20th century typesetting machinery, traditional platen presses and printing equipment.

In 2011 UCI commenced redevelopment of a former trouser factory outside Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire to house its lighting and print production operations. Since 2014 UCI has focussed on the development of the Factorylux lighting and Prelogram craft print brands as products became available on the high street and from other online retailers.

By 2015 UCI had quadrupled the size of its operations in Hebden Bridge. The Old Trouser Factory now houses all design, manufacturing, dispatch and support operations. Major investment in people, tooling, technology and vertical integration deliver unrivalled order fulfilment, unsurpassed safety & compliance standards and exceptional customer support.

Urban Cottage Industries Ltd is co-owned by its employees and was one of the first accredited Living Wage employers in the UK. All its shareholders, directors and employees are resident in the UK for corporation, income and capital gains tax.
