Company overview

Our mattresses don’t start life in a factory, but on a 300-acre farm in North Yorkshire. Dating back to 1840, Harrison Spinks is a fifth-generation family business that today has over 600 people working with us, from farmers who rear our prize sheep to craftsmen and women who still sew, side-stitch and tuft our mattresses by hand.

Our business is a family one, we treat it, and everyone in it as our own. It’s not just our own family ties, but many other families have also passed down their skills within the business, to sons and daughters, aunties, uncles and great-great grandfathers. We truly are a family business and we care about what we do.

We only make the very best beds, using the finest natural fillings, innovative pocket spring technology and of course, everything is finished by hand. We’re naturally innovative and masters of our craft. Constantly bringing new ideas to our traditional techniques – and we do all this because we care.

From drawing our own wire, to growing natural fibres on our farm, we are continuously striving to improve our processes and products. Our commitment has even been recognised by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II when we became double Queen’s Awards for Enterprise holders for the second time. These prestigious awards are presented to UK businesses for outstanding achievement, and we remain the only bed manufacturer to have won two such awards in the same year, twice over. Having previously received Queen’s Awards for Innovation and Sustainable Development in 2013 this makes Harrison Spinks the only bed-maker to receive two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in the same year on two separate occasions, bringing the total awarded to Harrison Spinks to four.

In April 2018 we were awarded two more Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation and International Trade. To win the Innovation Award consecutively in 2013 and 2018 (the awards last for 5 years) just proves the pioneering leadership of the company and its quest to continuously innovate.
