Luxury bed maker Hypnos, headquartered in Princes Risborough, England, won the prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise for International Trade in its 2017 honors list.
The award is granted to British businesses that demonstrate the highest level of excellence within their field. Hypnos received the distinction in recognition of its substantial growth and commercial success in international business, as well as strong year-on-year growth in overseas sales and export activity.
James Keen, managing director of Hypnos, said, “It’s a true honor to receive such an accolade, and we’re incredibly proud of this achievement and all the hard work that’s been put in over the last few years.”
“During this time we have focused our attention on developing a global footprint and global brand, investing time and resources in securing a strong international position,” he said. “We now have more than 20 manufacturing licensees around the world, enabling us to serve our global hotel customers efficiently and effectively. We also showcase our luxury beds in more than 120 retail stores around the world, selling mattresses and beautifully upholstered beds that are handmade in both the U.K. and the U.S. to a range of global consumers in need of a high-quality bespoke bed and a relaxing and comfortable night’s sleep.”
Norfolk, Virginia-based manufacturer Paramount Sleep holds the exclusive license to manufacture and distribute the Hypnos brand in the United States.
