Mattress Online recognised for ecommerce upscaling achievements

Mattress Online landed a prominent Scale-Up Award at this year’s event, which took place at Tobacco Dock in London and was hosted by Russell Kane.

Technology has long been at the forefront of the business, and Mattress Online was one of the first online sellers of mattresses – the company launched its bespoke ecommerce platform from a bedroom and garage in 2003.

During the pandemic, Rotherham-based Mattress Online saw turnover leap to £37.5m fuelled by stay-at-home spending on DIY and homeware. Growth was underpinned by the business' in-house development team.

In the past 18 months, Mattress Online has seen turnover and profit increase by +200%, with heightened demand following the pandemic. This has enabled the business to introduce 20 new members of staff, some within their senior team, as well as launch its first three physical stores, in Sheffield, Rotherham and Skipton.

Now the business has achieved an E-Commerce Business Award from the 2022 Scale-Up Awards.

Celebrating high-growth companies and the entrepreneurs running them, the Scale-Up Awards' independent panel of judges comprised Touker Suleyman from Dragon’s Den, PensionBee co-founder Jonathan Lister Parsons, and many others.

Steve Adams, CEO of Mattress Online, says: “To be recognised nationally for our work is incredible. After being involved in ecommerce from the early days and building the Mattress Online platform along with my growing team for almost 20 years, to be awarded this title is a proud achievement.”
