Yorkshire-based Harrison Spinks has received two prestigious Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, bringing the total number won by the company to four. The bed maker is one of only eight organisations that received more than one accolade in the 2018 awards.

The Leeds-based luxury bed maker was awarded a Queen’s Award for Innovation and one for International Trade in the 2018 awards announced on 21 April. It previously received Queen’s Awards for Innovation and Sustainable Development in 2013. The company believes it is the only bed-maker to receive two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise on two occasions.

Simon Spinks, Managing Director of Harrison Spinks said: “To be granted two more Queen’s Awards for Enterprise is a huge honour and reflects the hard work and dedication of the whole Harrison Spinks team.

“As a proud British manufacturer we’re pleased that our place in the international market has been acknowledged by the Queen’s Award for International Trade. We feel that our British values of innovation and quality have set us up for success in a global marketplace.

“Since the company was established in 1840, we have always strived to innovate and go about our business in a slightly different way, whether that be creating new ways to manufacture springs or cultivating our farm so we can grow our own natural fillings. We’re delighted to be recognised by the most prestigious enterprise awards in the UK.”
