Harrison Spinks commended in UK business awards

Harrison Spinks, one of Great Britain’s most established and innovative bed makers, has won the Family Business of the Year award at the prestigious UK Private Business Awards.

The UK Private Business Awards, sponsored by PwC, celebrates the best in the private sector and highlights the achievements of individuals and companies. The event recognises the importance of private companies to the UK economy and is attended by CEOs and entrepreneurs from every region of the UK.

Harrison Spinks beat stiff competition from across the UK to win the esteemed Family Business of the Year award, sponsored by Rigby Group plc. As a fifth-generation family business, the bed maker was commended for its innovative approach to its industry, while still keeping the family approach at the heart of the company.

Simon Spinks, MD of Harrison Spinks, says: “We’re extremely proud of our heritage and while we have more than 600 people working with us, we still like to maintain the family feel within the business. My father, son and me are all active within the company and the industry, so making high quality beds is in our DNA!

“As the most vertically integrated bed manufacturer in the world, our approach has always been a little bit different to others within the sector. From growing natural fillings on our own farm to drawing wire for our patented spring technology, we pride ourselves on making the best night’s sleep possible.”

Harrison Spinks manufactures beds under the Harrison, Somnus and Spink & Edgar brands as well as several own label products.
