Hypnos named AIS Bed Supplier of the Year

Buying group Associated Independent Stores (AIS) has announced its Bed Supplier Of the Year Awards and Gold Standard winners for 2015, as voted for by AIS member stores.

Following on from its furniture show on 1st-2nd September where the Upholstery and Cabinet category winners were revealed, the bed accolades were announced at the group's bed and bedroom furniture show on 15th September.

Hypnos was crowned the overall winner, scooping the Bed Supplier of the Year for the first time, pushing Harrison Beds in to second place, with Tempur in third. All three suppliers also received the AIS Gold Standard Award along with Breasley, Dreamworks Beds, Kaymed, Relyon, Sweet Dreams and Vispring.

Hypnos’ marketing director, Chris Ward, comments: "We are thrilled to win the coveted Bed Supplier of the Year Award, especially after being presented with the Gold Standard Award by AIS in previous years. The fact that it is judged by retailers themselves makes it even more special for the team at Hypnos.

“This award win comes at an exciting time for us and is the fifth industry award we’ve won in the past year and we’re incredibly proud of this achievement. Winning these awards is great for the company and shows that our strategy and performance is being recognised by the industry. The awards also prove highly valuable in helping to differentiate us from our competitors and reinforce our brand values, as well as the quality of our products.

“Having such prestigious awards benefits us internally too, keeping the team energised, reinforcing to our staff that they work for a leading company and boosting morale within the business. Recognising such achievements also helps us to drive innovation and sustainability within the industry for many more years to come.”

This latest award win follows a spate of accolades achieved in the past 12 months for the British-based bedmaker, which includes the NBF Bed Manufacturer of the Year Award, the Furniture Maker’s Company 2015 Sustainability Award, the Interiors Monthly 2015 Sustainability Award and the Considerate Hotelier Association 2015 Considerate Supplier of the Year Award.
