Corona Virus Up Date Jan 2021
Although covid seems to be on the rise again , it still seems the most Manafacturers are still operating and producing mattresses and Beds , albeit with reduced staff levels
Hypnos and Sleepeezee lead time is now 12-14 weeks , while Relyon, Millbrook, Sealy, Salus, Dunlopillo, are all approximately 7- 8 weeks , and smaller companies like Siesta, Highgrove etc are steady around 4 weeks
Availability of Spring cages are still low , but Spun bound fabric which is used to case the springs is more of an issue as up to 70% of what is manufactured is used for PPE .
Memory Foam and Soft Foam is still a problem , although more is starting to come through with Komfi, Mammoth and Sonlevo reducing their lead times
Many Delivery companies are furloughing some of the staff , as many shops are going to be closed until middle of February 2021
So although all our delivery companies we use are still working , most are only at about 75 % of their Normal capacity.
