"The name of Josiah France has been connected with cloth making at Honley, Huddersfield, since 1880 when he rented one of the original mills in the village. Cloth making at Honley goes back to 1344 and Josiah France himself came from a family already well-established in the days of handloom and cottage weaving. Over the years the company prospered and expanded, changing first of all from water power and hand loom weaving to steam, and later to all-electric power. A consistent policy has established the name of Josiah France, throughout the world, as synonymous with top quality worsted cloth. In spite of changes in overseas markets resulting from two world wars and other upheavals, the company succeeded in finding markets by constant attention to changing tastes and production methods. 85% of Josiah France worsteds are exported, either directly or indirectly."
