Compliance and our New Product Testing Hub

Compliance is a critical factor in manufacturing goods for the British marketplace – perhaps the most essential – and Sweet Dreams have always paid huge attention to this, with an excellent record to prove it. Visitors to our exhibition stands in 2019 will be pleased to learn that earlier this year we established a state-of-the-art product testing hub at our Scholefield Mill in Nelson, just a mile or so away from Sweet Dreams HQ in Burnley.

Scholefield Technology Centre comprises no fewer than seven machines, including one testing for mattress durability, one for sofa durability and a flammability testing area. The centre is designed not only to ensure that beds, sofas and all our own-manufactured products are fully compliant before leaving the factory, but also to make considerable savings of economy and resources in enabling us to test on-site. Staffed by a compliance manager and technician, the centre is a member of SATRA and we anticipate gaining UKAS accreditation later this year.
