Dreams awarded Manufacturing Guild Mark

Dreams has been awarded the prestigious Manufacturing Guild Mark by The Furniture Makers’ Company.

Howard James, operations manager at FIRA International, presented the award today to Michael Dingwall, director of production and quality, and Ian King, operational excellence manager, at Dreams’ bed factory in Oldbury, West Midlands.

The award follows the formal welcome of Dreams as a corporate partner of The Furniture Makers’ Company earlier this year.

Dreams
’ Oldbury factory is home to a 250-strong team (including five apprentices), spanning quilting, sewing, fabric cutting, upholstery, tape edging, mattress tufting, building, and frame and drawer assembly. Over half of the mattresses Dreams sells are handmade at the site.

This accreditation is a real testament to the expertise of our craftspeople and the high standards we maintain throughout our business.

Congratulations to Dreams on this well-deserved recognition, we look forward to witnessing your continued success and contributions to the furniture and furnishings industry.”
