Sleepyhead is 100% New Zealand owned and operated, but our commitment to making every component of our beds in New Zealand is more than just providing local jobs. We know we can do it better…
We are often asked how Sleepyhead has consistently led the market in quality and value for 75 years, while so many other manufacturers have come and gone.
One reason is we are a stable family business. The Turner family’s hands-on ownership through the generations has seen continuity of management and an accumulation of knowledge and expertise that is unrivalled. Today directors Craig and Graeme Turner are regularly on the factory floor monitoring, perfecting and improving the way things are done.
Another constant has been our passion to produce the best beds – not just in New Zealand, but the world. Constant research and development has produced several ‘world first’ innovations such as Sensorzone.
We have also made regular, substantial investments in the latest production technology, the most recent example is our Evocell Foam plant, the only one of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. This plant produces Dreamfoam, which is superior in feel, comfort and consistency while being much gentler on the environment to manufacture than standard foam.
We’re proud that our commitment to the local production of our beds has created over 1000 jobs across Australasia. This ensures we have full control over the quality of manufacture and the materials used – which must be of the highest grade to meet our stringent standards.
But perhaps the most vital ingredient in our success is what our 75 years in business has taught us about you, the customer, and what you want in a bed. And because you all come in different shapes, sizes and preferences, we have developed a wide range of comfort and support options . It means you can rest easy there is a perfect Sleepyhead for your body and your budget.
No matter which one of our beds you choose, because it bears the Sleepyhead name you’ll know it has been built with lasting quality. Graeme, Craig and the Turner’s before them guarantee it.
