It’s been a busy year here at Sleepeezee, with big news, events and exciting new projects underway. With just a few day’s left till Christmas, we’re taking a look back on another successful year.
Customer service and innovation has always been a key priority of our business and 2018 was no different. We focused on nurturing relationships with our current retailers as well as growing new ones.
One of our proudest moments of the year was being able to announce our Carbon Neutral status. Sustainability remains at the forefront of our practices and no waste generated from our manufacturing facility goes to landfill.
Sleepeezee is also an active supporter of HRH The Prince of Wales’ Campaign for Wool, which supports British sheep farmers and promotes the unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable benefits of wool.
Throughout the year, we were lucky enough to attend a number of export shows, including shows such as Best of British 2018 in Shanghai.
We already have a number of dates in the diary for next year’s events and can’t wait to carry on growing our international presence.
In September, we were delighted to be able to present a cheque for £36,000 to QEST (Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust).
For every QEST collection mattress or divan sold we donate a portion of the proceeds to the charity, whose core objective is to sustain British craftsmanship. It’s a vision shared by Sleepeezee and one very close to our hearts.
As a UK manufacturer we recognise the need to maintain historical skills used within our industry. We are committed to encouraging excellence in traditional craftsmanship and to date, we’ve donated £75,000 to QEST and will continue working alongside the Trust in 2019.
A month later in October, This morning’s Dr Ranj visited our factory with the ITV camera crew to film for the show’s Presenter’s First Job feature! He worked here more than 20 years ago and we were thrilled to welcome him back.
As well as helping us tuft mattresses, Dr Ranj also surprised his mum Tarsem who has worked here for the past 31 years. We’re sure everyone will agree it was a very heart-warming moment.
To round the year off, we we’re named one of the ‘best mattresses for sale’ in the UK by the Evening Standard. Not only that but we won ‘Bedding Product of the Year’ via our partner retailer Harvey Norman, in Northern Ireland. This is a testament to the hard work, standard of service and commitment our team has shown this year.
So from all of us here at Sleepeezee we want to say thank you for your continued support over the last year and wish you a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
