Silentnight makes more than half a million beds each year across six brands including Sealy and Layezee. Last year it launched a new mattress range in partnership with British Wool. Founded in 1946, it was privatised in 2003 by the founder’s family before being acquired by the private equity firm HIG Capital in 2011. The Lancashire business is managed by Steve Freeman, 61, who oversaw profits of £7.8m last year.
