The Shire Bed Company expands manufacturing capability

The Shire Bed Company has invested nearly £750,000 expanding its major manufacturing facility in Dewsbury, Yorkshire by half as much again, creating work for an additional 20 staff.

The family-run business, which has been on its current site since 2001, sees an increase in size from 30,000 to 47,000 sq ft. 

The company already produces the Shire collection, the Eco Shire, Active Shire and the Contract Shire. This latest development will now enable it to begin production of a new range of roll-up mattress products.

Fara Butt, marketing director at The Shire Bed Company, says: “With the expansion now complete the extra space means we can start to manufacture a new product range we will be launching next month.

“With business continuing to grow it will also allow us to offer our customers a more comprehensive selection of products.”

The Shire Bed Company produces high quality beds, mattresses and divan bases and supplies nationally and internationally to major retailers and the contract sector including education, care and hospitality.
