The textile industry has always had a strong tradition in the Semily area and so it is not surprising that a factory was built in Benešov u Semil that manufactures textiles and textile yarns from the Hybler and Son brand.

The Hybler and Son textile factory was established at the end of the 19th century. The founder of the factory, Josef Václav Hybler, first had a dam and then a textile factory built. This meant that the grounds included a laundry, a weaving mill, a dye-house and a print shop. Josef Václav Hybler gradually expanded the factory, but the greatest changes did not take place until after World War I. At that time, the buildings were architecturally unified and two staircases and a sprinkler tower were added to the largest multi-level building. This iteration of the grounds has survived to this day. The company became a major supplier of fabrics in Czechoslovakia and also exported its products abroad, including overseas. Manufacturing was restricted during World War II when emphasis was placed on industrial war production. After 1948, the factory became part of Bavlnářské závody and in 1968, part of the Kolora national enterprise. After 1989, when the owner’s descendants applied for restitution claims, HYBLER TEXTIL was started in 1996. The company is still continuing with its family tradition.
Currently, they focus on the production of linen and tablecloths.
