Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence

Sealy UK’s Golden Anniversary



This year marks a significant milestone for us here at Sealy as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. For half a century, we have been hand crafting a wonderful night’s sleep, marrying research, testing and science.

As we reflect on our journey, it’s a perfect moment to look back on the key moments that have brought us here today; join us as we share our story through a series of blogs.

From the very beginning, our focus was on combining the latest in research and testing, sleep technology and premium materials to create mattresses that offer unparalleled support and comfort.

Our pioneering Sealy Posturepedic range originated from the belief that a mattress should be orthopedically correct to provide support during rest. It was observed at the time, soft, unsupportive mattresses could potentially cause some people backache.

To investigate this issue, Dr. Addison and Dr. Bechtol developed the Initial Posturepedic Support Criteria. The criteria showcased how the body could be supported during rest by maintaining correct spinal alignment. It was a pivotal moment of revolution that forever transformed the way the world would sleep.


Today, we continue to uphold these values which have defined us for the past 50 years. Our commitment to deliver genuine support, true comfort and durability that you can depend on is unwavering.

We understand that a good night’s sleep is essential for overall well-being, that’s why our products are designed for everyone, made for you.

As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, we are more excited than ever about the future of Sealy UK. The next chapter in our story will be to continue investing in cutting-edge research to develop the next generation of mattresses. As it is our wholehearted commitment to the entire sleep scape that allows the Sealy Sleep Team to make mattresses that are not only different but made with love, passion & care right here in Britain.

Looking forward, we are excited about the endless possibilities that lie ahead.

Here’s to dreaming big and sleeping even better!
