Following the recent almost £750,000 expansion of its manufacturing facility – which increased operational space from 30,000 to 47,000 square feet - Dewsbury-based manufacturer The Shire Bed Company has announced a further investment of more than £100,000 in an automatic, all-in-one border, handle and label machine for its mattresses.

With multi-needle technology, the machine comes with three independent systems capable of sewing elegant border designs, automatically stitching fabric handles and attaching labels. Fara Butt, marketing director, The Shire Bed Company said: “We are passionate about product quality and work very hard to bring our very latest collections to our customers.  This investment enables us to continue to offer a more comprehensive range of products.”

The Shire Bed Company supplies nationally and internationally to major retailers and the contract sector including education, care and hospitality.
