Spinks has secured the King’s Award for Innovation for its design and manufacture of glueless fine-wire pocket springs, along with a King’s Award for International Trade.
“It is a huge honor to be part of the team recognised with two inaugural King’s Awards this year,” said Darren Marcangelo, managing director at Spinks. “We are proud to become industry leaders while championing innovation along with high-quality, sustainable design. We want to continue to innovate and supply the furniture and bedding industry with new and exciting spring products, both domestically and internationally.”
The two King’s Awards follow recently having all Spinks’ pocket springs C2C accredited, a process that verifies products are safe, sustainable and ethically sourced. The accreditation consists of a rigorous, 18-month third-party product certification program.
A spring components supplier to the mattress and furniture industries, Spinks is part of the Leeds, England-based Harrison Spinks. The supplier’s award in 2019, the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, recognized the products it manufactures reducing the industry’s reliance on petrochemical based products.
The King’s Awards for Enterprise was previously known as The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, and the new name reflects the king’s desire to continue the legacy of HM Queen Elizabeth II’s by recognizing outstanding U.K. businesses. The award program, now in its 57th year, is the most prestigious business award in the country, with successful firms able to use the esteemed King’s Awards Emblem for the next five years. The 2023 honors will be presented later this year.
