Major investment

Following the huge success of the NBF Bed Show, we would like to share our delight in placing the first post-show order with machinery supplier A. Tarr Limited, who were also exhibiting at this year’s show. Immediately following the show, GNG’s Chairman Phillip Whittell met with Chris Tarr, Managing Director of A. Tarr, to finalise an order for state of the art foam conversion machinery, a deal worth £300,000.

We have experienced significant growth over the last 18 months, which we believe is down to our commitment to innovation and the development of new uses for foam. With 2014 forecasts showing further growth, along with planned business expansions, we saw the need to upgrade our equipment to enable us to keep up with demand in both the domestic and medical mattress markets, and saw the Bed Show as the perfect opportunity to do this.

Christopher Cowling, GNG’s Group Accountant said: “We always strive to live up to our strapline; Innovators in Foam Technology, and with our recent growth, this meant acquiring new machinery to meet the growing demands.” “The NBF Bed Show was not only a fantastic opportunity to exhibit our latest product range, but it has also allowed us to expand our business in other ways, and facilitated our meeting with Chris.” A. Tarr will be supplying GNG with some of the world’s finest equipment, including a Fecken Kirfel CNC machine and Dolphin Pack mattress rolling machine.
