Glencraft (Aberdeen) Ltd is a registered charity and a trading Social Enterprise. Established in 1843, the company manufactures a range of classic and luxury mattresses, all hand-finished and made to order, as well as making a range of bed bases.
Their luxury range of mattresses are made with sustainable, natural materials. Only the finest materials are used, such as horse hair, mohair, cashmere and alpaca as well as wool.
The company has worked with some of the finest hotels in the UK and beyond, and can offer trade pricing for volume orders. Its products are also sold across Asia through a distribution partnership. It has a branded store in Hong Kong and a mall presence in Singapore. Further stores are planned for South Korea in the year ahead.
Glencraft is one of only two companies in its sector to hold a Royal Warrant to HM Queen Elizabeth, having served four generations of the Royal Family at Balmoral. Its social impact is to provide ‘Dignity Through Work’ by providing employment to disadvantaged individuals who would otherwise struggle to find meaningful job roles.
The company’s vision is to provide a stable and financially independent work place for as many disadvantaged people as possible and to provide them with a real purpose. Each purchase made is helping its staff to support themselves and maintain a sense of self-fulfillment.
“The entire team are very proud to have received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of Promoting Opportunity,” says Glencraft’s Director and Custodian, Graham McWilliam.
