Dewsbury-based Shire Beds recently reached the final stages of the Insider ‘Made in Yorkshire’ awards.

Shire, one of the most successful bed manufacturers in West Yorkshire, was nominated in the Manufacturer of the Year (under £25m) category of the prestigious awards.

The fifth annual Made in Yorkshire Awards celebrated world-class companies based in Yorkshire and the Humber and the products they are making in the region and selling across the world.

Since it was established in 1977, the business has more than trebled in size and now employs 70 people.

In the past year alone it has expanded its Dewsbury site from 30,000 square feet to over 100,000 square feet, representing a total investment in 2016 of nearly £2.5million.

Shire’s latest expansion is now underway, creating a new head office and showroom.

Fara Butt, sales and marketing director at Shire Beds, said: “We are proud of our Yorkshire roots and delighted to be an Insider Made in Yorkshire award finalist.

“We have had an extremely busy 12 months and this accolade is testament to the whole Shire Beds team, who work hard to make the company what it is today.”
