Bed maker launches its first US distribution centre with six-figure investment
Luxury British bed maker Harrison Spinks has invested in a new distribution centre in Los Angeles – its first ever US facility.
This will stock four of its most popular mattresses for clients across North America.
The 180-year-old Leeds-headquartered family business, which manufactures all its mattresses and beds in Yorkshire, has made a significant six-figure investment in the LA facility to benefit customers in the United States.
Its new facility will slash delivery lead times from three months to around two weeks. The brand first launched into the North American market in 2021.
This distribution centre will facilitate an upgraded US stocking programme which will hold the company’s Euston, Northumberland, Leicester and Strand mattresses, luxury enhancers and divan beds.
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 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 specialist, Rhenus Group.
