Readers' Choice Awards 2023: Best Bed Component Supplier

“At Leggett & Platt, we take pride in our ability to enhance comfort for millions around the world,” state L&P Springs UK’s sales manager Paul Hindle, and commercial manager Adam Ball. “Our dedication to this craft and commitment to innovation and sustainability have yielded tremendous results, and we are honoured to be named Furniture News readers’ Best Component Supplier for the third consecutive year.”

“Leggett & Platt would like to express our utmost appreciation to the readers of Furniture News, its staff, our customers, and everyone else involved in us receiving this tremendous recognition,” they continue.

“We maintain a continuous mission to enhance lives through high-quality components and advanced bedding technology, while also offering empowering and rewarding careers and working to bring about a better, more comfortable future. To not only win this award once, but three times in a row, validates the tireless dedication our employee-partners provide each day. On behalf of everyone at Leggett & Platt, thank you.”

Leggett & Platt is an established partner of choice for bedding companies seeking to source consistent, quality components manufactured by a secure, local supplier – while gaining the operational and lower working capital advantages of L&P’s value-add and supply chain solutions. Consequently, L&P benefits from close commercial partnerships with several key customers and suppliers.

The business is focused on selling spring and wire-related products. These often include technologically advanced features or utilise technologically advanced processes in their production. L&P also provides a host of generic, volume-based products that are not patent-protected. Products and processes are subject to continuous improvement as new technology is developed. 

The company consistently invests in new products and improved production processes to be at the forefront of the market, and Leggett & Platt’s operational management continuously streamlines costs to remain competitive.

“A key aspect of our success in providing award-winning components throughout the European market is Leggett & Platt Springs UK – a leading manufacturing facility filled with the bedding industry’s most advanced production capabilities,” the pair continue.

“Leggett & Platt Springs UK is constantly evolving – adapting, improving, and innovating to meet the ever-changing demands of the industry. As it evolves, so must our organisational leadership, to diversify thought processes and bring about fresh ideas. Many customers have dealt with the same sales representatives and managers throughout the years of our successful relationships. However, we understand that change is necessary, and moving forward, some interactions and processes may be different.

“In line with our commitment to continuous improvement, we would like to announce once more the following changes to our commercial department: David Nuttall will be retiring in June 2024 – and in terms of organisational strategy and to ensure a smooth transition, his responsibilities have been divided into two roles; Paul Hindle will assume the role of sales manager, L&P Springs UK, handling all sales and customer relationship activities and functions; and Adam Ball will assume the role of commercial manager, L&P Springs UK – being responsible for demand and revenue control, forecasting, and customer service functions (he will also lead the demand and revenue activities of our integrated business planning process).

“Until his retirement, David will mentor, support, and shadow his successors on a full-time basis while also managing special sales projects. 

“We would like to thank David for his 45 years with the business, managing sales and shaping our position in the UK market. His talent for developing and nurturing our key customer relationships will be missed.”
