Vita Group expands with acquisition of mattress manufacturer

Date published: 29 September 2021

Middleton foam manufacturer the Vita Group has acquired UK based specialist mattress manufacturer Usleep Limited.

Vita, one of Europe's leading providers of flexible polyurethane foam, has existing mattress production facilities in France, Germany, Romania, The Netherlands, UK and Hungary. The Usleep acquisition augments Vita's strategy to grow its bedding business across Europe.

Usleep produces a portfolio of foam, spring and hybrid mattresses for a number of the UK's leading mattress retailers and Bed in the Box (BiB) brands.

Usleep's two sites in Ashton under Lyne and Castle Donnington utilise state-of-the-art machinery to create one of the UK's most efficient automated mattress production processes.

This is the third acquisition completed by Vita in 2021, following the procurement of IMPE Srl, in Italy, and UK-based Technical Foam Services.

Speaking on behalf of the Vita Group, Group CEO Ian Robb said: "We are very excited to have Usleep join the Vita family. Usleep aligns with our values of safety, responsibility, resourcefulness, integrity, and innovation.

“Together, we look forward to supporting our customers and suppliers. This acquisition will enable collaboration on innovation across the end-to-end service, from unique foam technologies through to innovative mattress design".

Vita's Managing Director, Comfort Division Gilbert Davids, added: "The Vita Group's scale, innovation and operational capabilities complement well with Usleep, and together we will offer a compelling package of differentiated foam, right through to final white label production and fulfilment to consumers.

“Our commitment to increase our sustainability offering has made significant strides in 2021, and we have the advanced materials capability to enhance our offerings to our customers further."
