Mammoth has fought off competition from other medical device and pharmaceutical companies to scoop an award at the North of England Biomedical Awards.

The company, one of the fastest-growing names in the business – Mammoth’s mattresses are rapidly approaching £2m per annum (trade) - was honoured with the Outstanding Growth Award for its pioneering Sleep Science mattress.

MD John Tuton says: “We’ve always been extremely passionate about every design of our mattresses and this award recognises our outstanding commitment to innovation and product design.”

The Sleep Science mattress uses medical grade foam and has been designed for an environment where imbalances in body heat, sweat, hydration and circulation can often mean the difference between life and death.

The North of England Biomedical Awards – previously entitled the Business for Life Awards - celebrate companies within the biomedical sector across the North of England.
