Spink & Edgar, the premium mattress brand by one of Great Britain’s most established and innovative bed makers, Harrison Spinks, has launched in the US.
The new Spink & Edgar USA collection boasts the heritage and high-end qualities associated with Harrison Spinks’ Spink & Edgar brand in the UK. It also features the bed manufacturer’s industry-leading spring technology, as well as a host of the finest natural materials including wool, hemp and flax, grown on Harrison Spinks’ very own 300-acre farm in North Yorkshire.
Spink & Edgar, which makes its US debut at one of the premier retailers in the country, Sit N Sleep, comprises six different bed variants in its USA collection. Four will be assembled in the United States using natural materials imported from England, while the remaining two beds will be imported directly from the Spink & Edgar factory in Leeds, West Yorkshire.
Each Spink & Edgar USA bed is manufactured using Harrison Spinks’ 175 years of experience in making luxury, market-leading beds, and every bed in the collection is custom built to order.
As licensor of the Spink & Edgar brand, the Harrison Spinks team is working with brothers Mark and Jeff Quinn and Lance and Neil Ellman to launch the new collection in the US.
Mark and Jeff both boast strong experience in the bedding industry, with Mark having previously worked at Leggett & Platt and Jeff at Mattress Firm. Lance and Neil Ellman own one of the fastest-growing independent bedding producers in the US.
Speaking about the launch of Spink & Edgar USA, Simon Spinks, MD at Harrison Spinks, says: “Mark, Jeff, Lance and Neil all have a large amount of experience in the retail bedding sector, so to work with them to launch Spink & Edgar USA is really exciting.
“As a fifth generation family business, I’m hugely proud to see Harrison Spinks branching out into the US market by launching Spink & Edgar USA. We’re the only bed manufacturer in the world to have a farm on which we grow our own natural fillings for our mattresses and, by exporting these natural materials to the US as part of the Spink & Edgar USA manufacturing process, we’re positioning ourselves as the world’s most innovative bed manufacturer.
“The next few months are set to be very exciting for Spink & Edgar USA, and I’m looking forward to working closely with the Quinn and Ellman brothers to drive the brand forward into new markets across the US.”
Spink & Edgar USA mattresses are currently being produced at a state-of-the-art bedding facility in Phoenix, with plans to roll out to its Dallas and Orlando manufacturing operations over the next few months.
