Some research that was recently carried out by Make UK, the organisation of British manufacturers, showed that 65 percent of people think that Britain doesn’t break into the top 20 of the world’s manufacturers – even though this belief is completely wrong.
On average, the public places the UK at 56th in the world in manufacturing when, in reality, the UK breaks into the top 10.
In fact, manufacturing in the UK is currently driving economic recovery. It accounts for a total of 11 percent of Britain's Gross Domestic Product and employs 2.7 million workers. The British bed industry is one of the thriving manufacturing sectors and there is currently over 100 different bed makers in the UK, most of which belong to the National Bed Federation, or NBF.
NBF members must follow a code which ensures they are honest and that the beds they make are clean and safe, so consumers can buy with confidence. That’s why Happy Beds is proud of being a British bed maker: we are part of a family that ensures high-quality standards are met, as well as helping the UK grow as a major manufacturer.
Whether you are purchasing kids' bunk beds in Bournemouth or upholstered custom made beds in Glasgow, you can do so safe in the knowledge that British bed manufacturers are meeting high standards.
According to EEF, even though most people seem to have been swayed by the urban myth that Britain's manufacturing days are over, 72 percent would still prefer to buy British goods. With UK beds having long been amongst the best in the world, and with the bed industry currently helping to lift the country out of recession, there has never been a better time to invest in your sleep by opting for a bed from Happy Beds – a company built within the UK.
