Goral & Son open a new factory in Sheffield

HRH The Princess Royal visits the new factory to celebrate

Master shoemakers Goral & Son were delighted by a visit from HRH The Princess Royal to Sheffield to mark the opening of their new factory.

The renowned footwear manufacturer, which has more than 80 years experience in the trade, welcomed the princess in her role as President of the UK fashion and Textile Association to celebrate the new factory and the growth of the Goral & Son business.

Based on Spital Hill the new factory will allow Goral & Son to continue making high quality shoes for recognised brands as well as enabling the development of their own factory brand of trainers – heralding the release of eight unique, new designs in the early part of this year.

Director Dominik Goral said: “We are honoured to have Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal open our new factory; it marks a milestone for the business and helps support our plan to develop further by helping raise awareness of the work we do in Sheffield.”
