About Us

MattressTek was founded by Shaun Peel and Michael Birtwistle.

With over 30 years combined experience, we make British Made machinery for the Mattress Industry

Based near Accrington in Lancashire, all our machines are British Made ‘In-house’ and are built on rock-solid foundations using our own manufacturing facilities and the latest state of the art machinery equipment (Amada). This gives us full control on every aspect from machine design to testing and PDI. Our team of ‘In-House’ CAD designers, using the latest solidworks software enables us to create quality and reliable machine designs.

This philosophy allows us to develop valuable long-term relationships with customers for whom we offer extensive support and technical expertise.

We’re a mixture of designers, engineers and problem solvers who love what we do and we take great pride in our ability to deliver integrated solutions for the Mattress Machinery industry.
