The Harrison Spinks Leicester Mattress
Luxury British bedmaker Harrison Spinks has opened a new distribution centre in Los Angeles, marking its first-ever US facility. The family-owned business, which has been making handmade 100% natural mattresses and beds in Yorkshire, England for 180 years, has invested a six-figure sum in the LA facility to benefit customers in North America.
The new center will stock four of its most popular British-made mattresses and reduce delivery lead times from three months to around two weeks. The move follows growth in the region and is part of the company's plan to expand its independent retailer offering in the USA and Canada.
This distribution centre will facilitate an upgraded US stocking program which will hold its Euston, Northumberland, Leicester and Strand mattresses, luxury enhancers and divan beds.
Harrison Spinks offers mattresses that are 100% recyclable, free from harmful chemicals, naturally fire retardant, and made with an ultra-fine wire pocket spring system for superior comfort. It grows its own natural fillings on its farm in Yorkshire without pesticides. The facility is leased in partnership with logistics specialists Rhenus Group.
Scott Hollis, North America Sales Manager at Harrison Spinks, said: “When we launched into the market here in North America, our aim was to grow and expand across the country. Now we have achieved growth and brand awareness, we’re now doubling-down on distribution times so that our US customers can enjoy a better night’s sleep much faster than before.
“This facility is incredibly significant within our business plan, as it ensures our brand is much stronger within the country and more competitive, as customers can now have premium comfort with less wait times.
“It also greatly benefits our stockists along the West Coast of the United States, as we can now offer our beds to them with an extremely competitive lead time. We have plans to open more distribution centres as we continue to grow our independent retailer offering within the USA and Canada.”
The facility is leased in partnership with logistics specialists, Rhenus Group, which Harrison Spinks is working with to provide this brand-new distribution service to its US customers.
