Sealy UK is celebrating after a buoyant six months of trading, which has seen it supply more than 1,800 mattresses to customers.

The Aspatria-based factory has won prestigious contracts with the new Saga Discovery cruise ship, The Standard hotel in London and The Stratford in east London.

Over 1,000 specially designed mattresses are on board the Discovery cruise ship, which was launched earlier this month.

The new model, called the Sailaway, is exclusive to Saga.

US hotel chain The Standard will open its first UK hotel this summer and its bedrooms have been kitted out with 280 mattresses from Sealy, built to a new bespoke specification.

It followed Sealy’s supply of 218 mattresses and 245 complete beds to The Stratford within the new Manhattan Loft Gardens development, made up of 145-bedroom hotel and 248 rental loft apartments.

Julie Gray, contract sales manager, said: “We are thrilled to have won so many prestigious contracts with fantastic customers over the last few months.

“Hotels and cruise ships are taking their bed and mattress offering more seriously than ever before as guests look for a location that will help them achieve that all-important great night’s sleep, and we hope our mattresses will help our customer’s guests achieve this.”

Chris Turner, head of procurement at Manhattan Loft Gardens Development, added: “Sealy’s ability to design and deliver for our hotel is testament to the team’s knowledge, experience and expertise.”
