Home Factory Reveals How Household Favourites Are Made

Apr 21, 2015

Cineflix and HGTV Canada are taking viewers on a whirlwind nuts-and-bolts tour of the North American factories that produce our favourite creature comforts in the brand new series Home Factory , premiering with back-to-back episodes Friday, April 24 starting at 10pm ET/PT on HGTV Canada.  

In 14 action-packed episodes, Home Factory zips down conveyor belts and assembly lines, meets some incredible factory workers, and along the way reveals the intricate manufacturing processes that transform raw materials into the everyday household products we all use and love.

“Building on the successful Food Factory franchise, we’re excited to be premiering our new series on HGTV,” said Philip Whelan, Executive Producer, Cineflix. “Home Factory is proof that ordinary household products are anything but! We’re sure audiences will connect with the show as they have with Food Factory and Food Factory USA.”

In the series premiere of Home Factory , find out how 8,000,000 Crayola crayons roll off the assembly line every day; discover the mighty power behind a tiny, hand-held vacuum; tour a state-of-the-art Canadian knitting facility that produces half a million toques per year; and get the low-down on how a classic newsboy bicycle goes from a pile of raw steel parts to a road warrior. Other products featured in the first season of Home Factory include plastic, pink flamingos; rubber ducks; a barbecue; Wilson® Footballs; and LUSH’s Ocean Salt scrub.

Home Factory is a Cineflix (Home Factory) Inc. production, in association with HGTV Canada. Philip Whelan is among the Executive Producers for Cineflix. Home Factory builds on the successful Food Factory franchise, a format created by Shaw Media for Food Network Canada, and is distributed internationally by Cineflix Rights.
