Bedding manufacturer Trendsetter Home Furnishings has seen profits leap by almost a quarter.

Turnover rose from £22.5m to £23.3m.
‘Technological breakthroughs and developments have put us at the forefront of our industry,’ says Claire Watkin, Trendsetter md. ‘From our market-leading fibre innovations, such as Smartfil and Allergy Shield to moisture control, dual layer constructions and luxury fabrics, all products fuse innovation with comfort and luxury. And they were all developed with our customers in mind. The customer stays central to everything that we do. We tailor solutions for each of our retail and hotel partners. They get specialist support from us and they get trusted household branded names that are proven to drive sales.’
The company has launched trendsetterhomefurnishings.com, explaining the company’s history and approach.
‘The new website is our way of pulling the whole story together. Visitors to the site can learn about our six trademarked technologies, including SonicSeam, Smartfil, Procool and Allergy Shield, that have established Trendsetter as the industry leader and forerunner in the sector, but they can also see the supportive work our company is involved in through a partnership approach to business across the board,’ adds Watkin.
