Specialist international hospitality bed supplier, Hypnos Contract Beds, has opened a new distribution centre, creating 14 new jobs.
The 18,000sq ft unit, situated in Castle Donington, will see approximately 225,000 beds, destined for the European and UK hospitality markets, pass through its doors each year and confirms Hypnos’ plans for continued growth and expansion. John Woolley, managing director at Hypnos Contract Beds, explained: “We have outgrown our current premises, so we needed a distribution centre which could accommodate our product output now and as we move forward. “This site is ideal because it offers us the required space in a central UK location and is close to our factory in Castle Donington.”
Hypnos Contract Beds are proud to confirm that not only will the centre provide a larger space for distribution but will also see 14 new jobs created, taking the total number employed there to 38. This is in addition to a fleet of 10 vehicles that will operate from the site. Further supporting Hypnos’ green credentials, the site will facilitate fewer vehicle movements due to the increased capacity to hold stock and its closer proximity to the production facility.
Hypnos was the first carbon neutral bedmaker in the world and is the only bed manufacturer to have held this prestigious award for seven years. This accolade endorses its commitment to responsible manufacturing as part of its wider Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities, says Woolley.
With sustainable design and manufacture at its core, Hypnos uses natural and sustainable fillings and ethically sourced timber. With a clear focus on luxury and style, all Hypnos beds are also 100 per cent recyclable at the end of their life, ensuring they never need to go to landfill and that customers can select products which have been ethically made.
