Yorkshire-Based Duvalay Scoops National Business Award

Yorkshire-based Duvalay has been successful at this year’s Family Business of the Year Awards after winning the Family Business of the Year Award in the Homes & Gardens category.

Duvalay, which sells sleep products globally to both the leisure and homes markets, has had its most successful year to date, with the award win recognising the significant growth the company has experienced. Turnover has increased to over £12.5m, as well as acquiring Nursery Connections – the UK’s leading manufacturer of cot mattresses in a pre-pack administration deal that safeguarded over 35 jobs.

The awards, which were held at Royal College of Physicians Museum, are hosted by Family Business United (FBU), a leading global family business community. Their aim is to provide resources as well as helping to raise the profile of the family business sector.

Elizabeth Colleran, Sales & Marketing Director at Duvalay, says: “We’re over the moon to have won this award as it recognises and celebrates the success stories of family businesses throughout the UK.”

“Duvalay is currently undergoing a period of significant growth through product launches including new mattress collections for the home and through acquisitions of similar businesses. This award win is testament to the work that not only the leadership team are currently doing, but also the wider Duvalay family of employees who all play a vital role in our continued success story.”

Having been founded in 2003 by husband-and-wife team, Alan and Liz Colleran, the business leadership team has grown to include their sons, Thomas and William, who hold the roles of Commercial Director and Finance Director respectively.
