Shire invests in machinery to support growing line

The Shire Bed Company has invested nearly three quarters of a million pounds into new machinery for its dedicated Roll & Rest production facility.

The company's range of ready-mats proved so successful that Shire recently purchased a wrapping and rolling machine as well as a glue line, to help make its systems as automated as possible.

The manufacturer has also bought a new foam cutting machine. 

In the past 12 months alone, The Shire Bed Company has now invested nearly £2.5m in expanding and upgrading its facilities. 

Marketing director Fara Butt says: "As our business continues to grow, our investment into this state-of-the-art machinery will allow us to expand and develop our product range to follow suit. We've also spent heavily on training our staff, to ensure they are able to fully maximise use of this high-spec technology. We're passionate about our products and their quality."

Roll & Rest now accounts for more than 10% of Shire's turnover.
