Sleepyhead history

Sleepyhead is part of The Comfort Group, the largest bedding and foam manufacturer in Australasia and is 100% New Zealand owned and operated. Our commitment to making our beds in New Zealand is more than just providing local jobs, we know we can do it better……

We are often asked how Sleepyhead has consistently led the market in quality and value for 80 years, while so many other manufacturers have come and gone.

One reason is we are a stable family business. The Turner family’s hands-on ownership through the generations has seen continuity of management and an accumulation of knowledge and expertise that is unrivalled. Today directors Craig and Graeme Turner are regularly on the factory floor monitoring, perfecting and improving the way things are done.

Another constant has been our passion to produce the best beds – not just in New Zealand, but the world. Constant research and development has produced ‘world first’ innovations such as Sensorzone.

We have also made regular, substantial investments in the latest production technology, the most recent example is our Evocell Foam plant, the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere. This plant produces Dreamfoam, which is superior in feel, comfort and consistency while being much gentler on you and the environment than standard foam.

We’re proud that our commitment to the local production of our beds has created over 1200 jobs across Australasia. This ensures  we have full control over the quality of manufacture and the materials used – which must be of the highest grade to meet our stringent quality standards.

But perhaps the most vital ingredient in our success is what our 80 years in business has taught us about you, the customer, and what you want in a bed. And because we all come in different shapes, sizes and preferences, we have developed a wide range of comfort and support options. It means you can rest easy there is a Sleepyhead right for your body and your budget.

No matter which one of our beds you choose, because it bears the Sleepyhead name you’ll know it has been built with lasting quality. Graeme, Craig, and all the Turner’s before them, will guarantee it.
