Retailer Mattress Online has been crowned Large Business of the Year at the Sheffield Business Awards 2021 as it marks its 18th anniversary of trading.
The award recognises how Mattress Online has achieved consistent growth backed by a strong financial performance.
Proudly collecting the award, Chief Executive Officer Steve Adams said; “I’ve barely looked up for almost 18 years – steadily growing the business and team to what it is today.
“For Mattress Online to be recognised by the regional business community is a fantastic feeling, particularly after such a demanding 18 months.
“We were up against some tough competition from Shakespeare Martineau and CC33, which makes the win even more of an honour. Everyone in my now 70-strong team played a part in us being awarded this accolade and I am very grateful for their hard work and support.”
In the last year, Steve has expanded the Mattress Online workforce by over 60% across the business, welcoming colleagues who had lost jobs during the pandemic and expanding the leadership team.
To show appreciation during that extraordinary time, Steve launched a flagship health initiative to support the health and wellbeing of his staff.
The online retailer, one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses, has seen turnover soar to £37.5m in the past year thanks to a sales surge during the pandemic
Over the next three years, Mattress Online plans to open seven physical stores. It currently has a showroom store in Rotherham.
