British bedmaker opens US distribution centre

Bedmaker Harrison Spinks has made a six-figure investment in a new distribution centre in Los Angeles – its first US facility – which will stock four of its most popular British-made mattresses for clients across North America.  

Harrison Spinks made the investment following growth in the region, and says the new facility will significantly reduce delivery lead times from three months to around two weeks.  

It is a significant milestone for the British brand, which first launched into the North American market in 2021. This distribution centre will facilitate an upgraded US stocking programme which will hold its Euston, Northumberland, Leicester and Strand mattresses, luxury enhancers and divan beds. 

Scott Hollis, North America sales manager at Harrison Spinks (pictured), says: “When we launched into the market here in North America, our aim was to grow and expand across the country. Now we have achieved growth and brand awareness, we’re now doubling down on distribution times so that our US customers can enjoy a better night’s sleep much faster than before. 

“This facility is incredibly significant within our business plan, as it ensures our brand is much stronger within the country and more competitive, as customers can now have premium comfort with less wait times.

“It also greatly benefits our stockists along the West Coast of the US, as we can now offer our beds to them with an extremely competitive lead time. We have plans to open more distribution centres as we continue to grow our independent retailer offering within the USA and Canada.” 

The facility is leased in partnership with logistics specialist, Rhenus Group, with which Harrison Spinks is working to provide the new distribution service to its US customers.
