The concept of Duvalay’s simply ingenious, comforting mattress toppers arose from necessity…
Along with the many millions of people worldwide who embrace caravans as their ‘homes from home’, Liz and Alan Colleran were troubled by insomnia and back pain associated with caravanning, where the perfect leisure environment is so often compromised by a frustratingly uncomfortable bed.
PARTNERSHIP WITH SWIFT GROUP
As caravan and motorhome manufacturers strived to make their vehicles lighter, in 2013 the Collerans realised the one component no-one had ever considered was the heavy pocket sprung mattress. Yet again, they came up with a solution – inventing and launching the Duvalite collection of shaped and bespoke caravan and motorhome mattresses.
Made from recycled Coca-Cola bottles, Duvalite mattresses are up to 35 percent lighter than traditional mattresses – delivering cost savings on fuel consumption. The UK’s largest caravan manufacturer, the East Yorkshire-based Swift Group signed a revolutionary deal to fit Duvalite mattresses as standard in their top-of-the-range caravans and campervans – paving the way for Duvalay to move to an even bigger factory and create more jobs for skilled Yorkshire workers.
NATIONAL BED FEDERATION RECOGNITION
Recognising an opportunity to widen their business portfolio even further, the Collerans then began manufacturing mattresses, bed frames and divan sets for the home. The first collection was named after their Dragons’ Den investor, Hilary Devey, and launched in 2015. Having successfully established a UK-wide retail network within just 18 months – as well as receiving outstanding reviews from The Independent, Good Housekeeping Magazine and Mumsnet – Duvalay won ‘Bed Manufacturer of the Year’ recognition at the National Bed Federation’s Bed Industry Awards 2017-18 and 2018-19.
FRESHTEC IS LAUNCHED
2018 saw Duvalay expand its product range with FreshTec® foam, which is designed to regulate body temperature and minimise sweating – encouraging deeper, less interrupted sleep. It comes with the tried and tested benefits of memory foam – including lasting pressure relief to ease aches and pains. Since its launch, FreshTec has won widespread industry approval
