Inventors, innovators & passionate perfectionists since 1840

At Harrison Spinks, innovation is at the heart of everything we do. Every day we’re dreaming up new ideas and redefining what best should look like, to ensure you sleep soundly all night, every night; you could say it’s what gets us out of bed in the morning.

We see ourselves as the NASA of the bed world. We’re forever pushing the boundaries of engineering principles to develop truly ground-breaking technology.

How we work

Ground breaking spring technology

The secret to a perfect mattress is in the springs. We’re the inventors of world-leading micro pocket spring technology, used throughout all our mattress collections to provide unrivalled comfort and support. With some of highest density of mattress springs in the world, you really are sleeping on the best.

Ensuring excellence with pocket springs

Pocket spring mattresses offer the ultimate in support during sleep, but we’ve gone one better. Our Harrison and Spink & Edgar collections benefit from the Millennium Award-winning Revolution® pocket spring within a spring, designed by Simon Spinks himself, for a double layer of comfort and support.

High Density 4K micro springs

Our High Density 4K springs are a world first: 4,000 tiny pocket springs produced in a blanket sheet format to adapt to your body as you sleep. These springs are closest to the natural filling layers, and the perforated fabric pushes air through the mattress allowing it to breathe.

Out of bed

With a history of bed making spanning centuries, we’ve perfected the recipe for a good night’s sleep…but why stop there? We’re applying these same principles of comfort technology to other areas, such as running shoes, seating, cot mattresses and the automotive industry.

Recently we worked with the University of Central Lancashire to adapt our technology for use in a range of unique pocket sprung trainers. SPRINGURU contain 34 micro pocket springs in the mid-sole of each shoe, providing unparalleled levels of comfort and support.

What’s next?

Sleeping on the job isn’t in our nature; we’re always looking forward to the next big thing. Our pioneering ethos has already been recognised twice with two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in Innovation in 2013 and 2018, but we have no plans to stop there.

At our Innovation Centre in Leeds, we’ve got a whole team of engineers who play no part in our day-to-day manufacturing work. That’s because they’re living in the world of tomorrow, developing the next generation of pocket springs to ensure we stay ahead of the game. It’s what makes us The True Bedmakers.
