Mattress manufacturer enters talks over redundancies

Mattress manufacturer Hypnos is preparing to make redundancies at its Castle Donington factory.

The company said it is looking to ‘improve operational efficiency’ and will reduce staff numbers across its production, logistics and installation teams.

A spokesperson from Hypnos Contract Beds, commented: “We can confirm that we have entered into consultations with a limited number of staff in our production, logistics and installation teams at our Castle Donington factory, as we look to improve operational efficiency in 2023 under our transformation strategy.

“We are committed to minimising the impact on those involved and providing care and support to those affected, including fostering connections with local employment and support services to help them through this sensitive transition.”

According to reports, the move follows the loss of its contract to supply beds to hotel chain Premier Inn.

Premier Inn recently appointed mattress maker Silentnight as its official bed supplier, which has seen tens of thousands of new and exclusive enhanced-specification beds roll out in hotels across the UK, Ireland, Germany and the UAE from October.
