The History


Silentnight was first founded in 1946 in the town of Skipton in North Yorkshire. In 1961 the brand was growing at neck break speed and consequently had to move to larger premises in Lancashire and that is where they remain today. Some 20 years later in 1986 Silentnight revolutionised the world of mattresses with their miracoil spring system and from humble beginnings a super brand was born. Indeed, it was at this point that their advertising campaign introduced the Hippo and the Duck that became loved in households across the nation. Since then, this British brand has gone on to introduce the mirapocket, geltex and oodles of fabulous mattresses. The icing on the cake was when they were bestowed with the sustanability award in 1917.
