Hypnos has re-opened its factory

Over the past few months, life has been very different for us all and Hypnos would like to say a huge thank you for your patience and understanding whilst we were temporarily closed.

The government has now begun to ease some of the lockdown restrictions, whilst sharing guidelines on how workplaces should assess risk and safely begin to reopen. In response we wanted to let you know that we have safely re-started production at our Castle Donington factory.

Naturally, the health and safety of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority, and we spent time carefully planning our phased and safe return to work, with the implementation of our new processes taking place during May to ensure that returning staff are not only able to work safely but feel safe too.

We are operating with a smaller production team than normal for safety reasons, with reduced production capacity. Nevertheless, despite the additional PPE and social distancing safety measures, we are pleased to confirm that we have made tremendous progress and we will despatch all the outstanding orders that are needed and confirmed by our hospitality clients by the end of June.

We have also begun to process new orders from hospitality accommodation providers and interior designers, to satisfy both UK and International demand for our sustainably and ethically made beds. As demand grows, we will manage the safe increase of our production capacity. Our lead time for new orders is currently 4-6 weeks.

Some of our new robust safety and hygiene standards include all staff in the factory wearing PPE gear such as face masks, face shields and gloves, with dedicated hand sanitiser stations spread throughout the factory. In addition, a scheduled arrival procedure is in place and all employees are having their temperature taken through contactless methods each morning. Anyone with a temperature will be asked to go home to self-isolate.

Please continue to take care and stay safe.
