Bed and mattress specialist Duvalay won a Manufacturing Innovation Award at the 2019 Made in Yorkshire Awards, which celebrate world-class manufacturers from across the region.

The announcement was made at a reception hosted by Insider Media at the Hilton City Hotel in Leeds.

The West Yorkshire-based manufacturer, a BBC Dragons’ Den success story, came out on top in a category designed to recognise a company that has generated a substantial return and impact at both a national and international level for an innovative product designed and manufactured in Yorkshire.

Sales and marketing director Liz Colleran comments: “Every day, we search for new ways to make it easier to sleep better, and we are so grateful to the judges for recognising our commitment to ongoing innovation."
