It might have taken 12 years but we have just manufactured the 400,000th Moonraker Bed to roll off our production line. For a small privately owned family business this is an incredible statistic but, with the speed our beds are currently selling, we may well hit the magical half million mark by end of 2016 - something to aim for.
Our thanks go to all our loyal workers who have constantly helped us to achieve increased output to match the ever growing sales we are achieving. Despite the record numbers going through our production our lead time on new orders has barely been affected.
Our ten year club recently welcomed its latest member when Steve V completed his 10th year of service to Moonraker joining Andy, Keith, Scott, Sue, Maggie, Margaret, Barry, Lee, Donal, Karl & Tony as members. Not too long before further staff complete their first ten years at Moonraker Beds.
Since Moonraker beds started back in 2003 the factory has quadrupled in size. From an initial 10,000 square feet production unit we now operate from a 40,000 square feet factory.
The recent additions have seen the creation of a new all-purpose sewing room, a huge spring assembly and storage facility and increased storage space for raw materials to ensure that we maintain our fast delivery service.
Is it really 12 years since Hannah did a bit of modeling for us ? Now she is 20 and all grown up but we liked this picture so much that Hannah has been a part of every catalogue we have ever produced. Thanks Hannah !
Our vehicle fleet has been further extended by the purchase of a new Mercedes Sprinter 311 CDI and a new Mercedes Atego 816 lorry
Moonraker Beds is pleased to announce it is continuing its sponsorship deal with Trowbridge & District Football League team "The Stiffs".
Whilst the team has found things a little tough this season they still look resplendant in their new kit. Moonraker MD Keith Quadling is hopeful that the teams fortunes will pick up and, who knows, in twenty years time they may be playing in the Football league.
Our consumer collection has proven to be very popular with our retail stores. In September 2015 we launched our new brochure with many new models and an enhance Sovereign Collection. With spring counts now up to an impressive 3800 and eighteen choices of divan colour there is no greater flexibility on offer.
Here at Moonraker Beds we are so proud of our Wiltshire roots that our new brochure features Wiltshire's most iconic landmark on the front cover.
Moonraker Beds supplies beds to the independant retail market. The majority of these are high street stores with very few having an online prescence. We firmly believe that beds should be tried before purchasing. as we all spend around 1/3rd of our lives in bed it is one of your most important purchases. Support Britain's high street by supporting your independant local retailers.
