Bed retailer rises early from pandemic as revenues climb
Bed retailer Bedkingdom.co.uk, which has its flagship showroom in Heckmondwike, has recorded a 50% leap in year-on-year revenue, taking its turnover to more than £15m.
The company has seen its turnover climb from just £2m five years ago and remains on track to achieve its ambition of a £20m turnover before the end of 2023.
Over the last year the business has tripled its number of employees to 30, across all parts of the firm.
Founder and managing director, Ashley Hainsworth, said: “We’re incredibly proud of the way our business is growing and developing and delighted to see families coming to small businesses like ours to rejuvenate and improve their home and give them a great night’s sleep.
“We’ve worked hard on stocking a range of brands to cater to everyone’s needs, from affordable ranges to luxury brands to eco-friendly options, all with free next day home delivery.”
Bed Kingdom has invested back into its Heckmondwike showroom and is expanding its marketing team to capitalise on increasing online opportunities – particularly those presented by social media marketing.
The firm has promoted Levon Hall to the post of marketing director. He joined the business as an apprentice a little over a year ago, aged 22.
He said: “It’s a very exciting time for Bed Kingdom as we are exploring many new sales channels and marketplaces.
“We are shipping across the UK, matching prices and completely updating the look of our website.
“We are really set apart from other retailers by our young and ambitious team which is always full of fresh ideas, and always excited to innovate our strategies to fit current trends and anticipate new ones.”
