Readers' Choice 2021: Best UK Manufacturer

Hampshire-based Millbrook Bed Company has designed and manufactured beds for 75 years, delivering comfortable, high-quality sleep solutions while working towards a more sustainable future. 

“We’re delighted to win this award, and would like to thank all of the Furniture News readers for their votes and recognition for all of our hard work over the last year,” says operations director, Ross Thurston.

“Thanks also to the massive effort of all our staff, who have enabled us to adapt and evolve over the past year. We completely rearranged our factory and employed new skilled workers to help support the NHS with their demand for PPE – in total, we produced over 600,000 gowns. With the hard work and dedication of our fantastic team, we have been able not just to continue to manufacture sumptuous handmade mattresses, but also really push the innovation of new mattresses and brands.  

“We have also announced our significant partnership with Bedding Industries of America, taking the Millbrook brand to the US.

“Right now, there are some very exciting things happening at Millbrook Bed Co. We have a new corporate structure to embrace new brands and new technologies, such as the new Eclipse collection, our very first memory foam mattress. And we have several revolutionary new products launching at the NBF Bed Show this year, which are totally unique and unlike any other mattress currently in the market.

“It’s been a hard year, but we’ve released some very exciting products, and have been very consistent with both supporting the retailers and supplying products – certainly, in a time where supply chains were extremely challenging, we were very reliable in delivering all products on time.”
