Established in 1986, the Foam Company are now entering their 31st year. They pride themselves on being a family owned and run business, manufacturing foam, memory foam and latex components for use within the furniture industry. In addition, they are one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of mattresses with their own brands of SleepShaper and Revitalise, whilst also producing, under licence, Mammoth Medical Grade FoamTM
All their beds and mattresses are manufactured in Abingdon, Oxfordshire and as strong advocates of UK manufacturing, they ensure, where possible, that all materials are sourced from UK companies.
In order to continue their business growth, The Foam Company recognised the need to invest in their manufacturing process. The company’s mantra is “striving not to be the biggest, but the best” and this is reflected in their commitment to exacting precision within their manufacturing processes. Thus, state-of-the-art equipment would be paramount to the ongoing success of the business.
The business already owned one specialist Wintech mattress cutting machine and knew that a second machine would bring broad business benefits. However, a decision of this magnitude was not taken lightly, especially as the machine would cost a quarter of a million pounds.
