“The Awards recognise the commitment to excellence that we all share at Harrison Spinks and reflect the fact that innovation and sustainability are at the very heart of our business. We are dedicated to continuous improvement, so we will remain focused on developing products that enhance comfort wherever they can be applied.”
The company won awards in two categories in 2013 – Innovation and Sustainable Development – making history in the process as the first company of any kind to win both awards in the same year. Harrison Spinks was also the first bed manufacturer to receive either of the awards.
In October 2013, the company welcomed the Queen’s representative, Vice Lord-Lieutenant Tim Hare to its West Yorkshire head office showroom for a presentation ceremony. Harrison Spinks grant of appointment lasted for five years.
2018 saw Harrison Spinks awarded two more Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, this time in International Trade and once more in Innovation.
In 2019, we were thrilled that our constant efforts to be as vertically integrated and sustainable as possible saw Harrison Spinks recognised with the prestigious award for Sustainable Development for a second time, following the 2013 win for the same award.
Harrison Spinks is committed to using and promoting British wool. As well as raising sheep for eco-wool on the Harrison Spinks farm, the company is affiliate to the British Wool Marketing Board (BWMB).
Established in 1950, the BWMB is a not-for-profit organisation operating a central marketing system for UK fleece wool in order to provide a secure market outlook and achieve the best return for producers.
Harrison Spinks also supports The Campaign for Wool, funded by a number of organisations including the BWMB and supported by many leading figures from the worlds of fashion, interior design, carpets and building insulation. A worldwide initiative started by its patron, His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, the campaign promotes awareness of the unique, natural and sustainable benefits of wool, as well as its versatility and myriad uses. The campaign is already seeing increased demand for British farmed wool and Harrison Spinks is proud to be associated with this aim.
