Award wins propel machinery manufacturer to new heights

Following the success of its machinery innovations in the component processing fields, serving areas including foam and other materials, automation expert MattressTek is once again exhibiting at Foam Expo North America, following the installation of a new production line in Michigan – which came from a lead at last year’s show.

On top of that, the business is one of three finalists in the Machinery Innovation category of the UTECH Awards, which will be awarded at a show co-located with Sleep Expo Europe in Maastricht – and an Export finalist in the Insider Made in the North West Awards (the winners of which will be announced in May).

The brand recently won Best Mattress Manufacturing Machinery Company in this year’s SME News Business Elite Awards, and Specialist Machinery Manufacturer of the Year in the Corporate LiveWire Innovation & Excellence Awards. It is also shortlisted for a NICHE Business Award.

Technical director Shaun Peel says: “We are always extremely grateful to the judges of all the awards we have been lucky enough to be a finalist in, and even win, but to be recognised for our international trade in contributing to the North West – somewhere we are proud to be based (more specifically, Lancashire), with the majority of our suppliers here too – is super humbling.”

MattressTek was an Export finalist in Lancashire’s annual Red Rose Awards, and also made the final for the Insider International Trade Awards.

With the support of the awareness these awards provide, the business hopes help even more manufacturers streamline their production, and reduce wasted time, materials and resources.
