The Who's Of The Mattress World

Posted by Jim Lewis on

Numerous mattress brand names belong to the same holding or investment organisation and attempting to find out who operates everything has grown to be an enjoyable investigation for Corstorphine Bed Centre.

Mattress Companies

Firstly, as mattress development techniques improve, it has become noticeable that the internal components of various mattresses are similar but offered under different brand brands and, of course, prices. Knowing this provides you with the opportunity to be able to identify similar specs and selecting the manufacturer that offers the best value for money mattress.

We are all acquainted with the scenario of trainers where the nagging power of young people finds us paying more than four or five times the real value just for a designer brand. Buying a mattress solely based on a brand label is just as ludicrous.

The components used in all mattresses primarily are supplied from some specialised suppliers all manufacturers use these self-same manufacturers whether you have come across them or not.


Some Names

Looking at the makeup of the business listed below, it does display some rather obvious questions. Namely, if Steinhoff possesses the Staples Brand, the Myers Brand, the Dunlopillo Brand, etc. Exactly why are they not featured inside the stores they manage?

Consider Bensons for example Oct 2016 a browse for Myers no products found. A search for Staples no products found. A look for Dunlopillo only two models. Apart from a couple of brands from the Silentnight Group, Sealy and Silentnight, the Bensons site seems to be focused on the Sleepmaster brand and the Sensaform brand.

Brand names that are only found in Benson’s stores. Interesting!

The Silentnight Group is additionally an interesting company to study. Clearly, they do not have their own stores and partner up with numerous high street notables such as Argos, Tesco, Sainsbury, Carpetright and countless independents. Additionally, as detailed on this site, there are so many combinations of spring and upholstery products you can put together to significantly differentiate one mattress from another.

So why can there be so many Silentnight models available with differing model titles that can be realistically judged to be entirely and notably different?



The size of the mattress industry is extremely large. In the UK, there are well over a hundred bed and mattress producers some big and some smaller, many of whom are based in the Yorkshire area, recognised to be the mattress capital of the country. With this in mind, it gets to be a challenging task attempting to differentiate the manufacturers who are worthy investigating and those who just churn out cheap mattresses for the low-end market.

When you make a decision to ‘buy a new mattress’ we are conscious that as the investment is a once in a few years decision you will have no idea of wherever or how to begin your search. The manufacturers detailed next are considered to be the main suppliers within the trade and should be made use of as a starting place in your research. As we said at the start, knowing which brand names belong to whom will help in this search as numerous companies may not want you to know this.
