Founded in 1858 by a Somerset family of wool merchants, the Price Brothers and Co. business developed 100% wool mattresses that were of such high quality, they became known as mattresses that you could truly ‘rely-on’ for a good night’s sleep.
And so the Relyon name was born out of a reputation for hand crafting wonderfully comfortable natural mattresses. Today our beds harness the skills of Relyon’s artisan rich pedigree and combine them with the finest natural fillings, perfectly engineered calico covered pocket springs and a host of bespoke tailoring options.
Approaching luxury comfort in a haute couture fashion sense, the Heritage collection is endlessly customisable and can be individually tailored to suit all your unique requirements, whilst delivering uncompromising elegance to any bedroom.
In 1966 Relyon became a public company known as Relyon Group plc and used its financial strength to diversify into other areas. In 2001, the group was acquired by Steinhoff International Holdings Ltd., a quoted South African group with worldwide sales in excess of £5.2 billion. Steinhoff has over 70 factories worldwide with a strong presence throughout Europe, South Africa and Australia. www.steinhoffinternational.com
In addition to the Relyon bed division, the Steinhoff UK Group includes: Pritex, an industrial foam and fibre products business; and Steinhoff UK Furniture, the Group wholesale and distribution arm in the UK. As the market leader in the production of high quality mattresses, divan sets, and storabeds, the Relyon brand can be found in all leading furniture stores in the UK.
Relyon’s superior product quality has been recognised with a number of awards. In 1994 Relyon was the first bed manufacturer to be awarded with The Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers’ highly prestigious Manufacturing Guild Mark. Relyon remains only one of five major bed manufacturers to have achieved Guild Mark status.

In addition to these Relyon is one amongst a few bed manufacturers to have its own in-house laboratory, which systematically tests all raw materials to ensure that these are in accordance with product specifications and achieve European legalisation standards. Quality is important throughout the organisation, and Relyon is committed to the principles of ISO9001.
