Mattressmaker closure leads to asset sale

Milnsbridge, Huddersfield-based The Handmade Mattress Company has closed its doors after eight years of trading as a specialist infant mattress manufacturer.

Following a period of rapid expansion, in large thanks to the pandemic ‘baby boom’, the company has seen a decrease in orders which has resulted in the closure of the business, reports asset advisory firm Walker Singleton.

More than 300 items from The Handmade Mattress Company are now currently for sale by online auction, with the auction closing at 12pm on Thursday, 24th August.

Walker Singleton, which is hosting the online auction, has invited bids on the company’s stock and operational equipment following the appointment of Wilson Field as joint administrators. These include equipment for manufacturing, packaging, handling and storing mattresses and furniture, as well as two light commercial vehicles. All of the lots can be viewed here.

Walker Singleton associate director, Luke Hartshorn, comments: “The wide selection of equipment and stock available will appeal to a range of buyers, from furniture manufacturers through to wholesalers, traders and retailers. We would recommend anyone interested in taking part in the auction to view the lots and see for themselves the breadth and standard of items available.”
