Whitemeadow buys stake in UK foam supplier

Upholstery manufacturer Whitemeadow has bought a significant stake in one of its key foam suppliers, Breasley Ltd.

Whitemeadow has been a customer of Breasley, one of the largest independent foam fillings converters in the UK, for over 25 years.

Whitemeadow’s MD Ian Oscroft comments: “Given the supply chain challenges of the past 18 months, we have decided to invest in Breasley to protect Whitemeadow should a similar situation occur in the future. The added investment will secure consistent and high-quality foam supply for Whitemeadow and allow Breasley to invest in the latest technology in foam filling conversion.”

Breasley's MD Mike Crowshaw adds: “The partnership started around 1996 and Whitemeadow grew to be our largest customer about five years ago. We are very proud to have been part of the Whitemeadow success story over the years, and even more proud to be part of this joint venture. We are mid-way through evolving our operations to allow us to support further growth over many years to come.”
