Raising money for Red Nose Day

Red Nose Day 2015

We had a fun-filled Red Nose Day on Friday raising money for Comic Relief. Staff came to work in their onesies and customers were invited to guess the number of balloons in the Ottoman.

Comic Relief do some amazing work both here at home in the UK and in Africa. We raised an impressive £150 over the weekend thanks to staff and customer’s generosity! We will be donating all money raised to the charity and you can see here how this money will be well spent.

We will be contacting our winning customer who guessed the correct amount of balloons shortly!

 

Successful Komfi Re-Launch

GNG Group are delighted to report the successful re-launch of our luxury retail brand, Komfi, at the NBF Bed Show last month. Jim Harrower, ex-Managing Director at Sealy Posturpedic, and Jeff Davies, ex-Sales Director at Sealy Posturpedic, have come together to lead the Komfi dream team. GNG Group have over 35 years’ experience in manufacturing and supplying superior foam-based healthcare and luxury lifestyle products. Jim and Jeff’s aim is to combine this sleep expertise with our passion for design, to offer superior sleep at realistic prices.

Komfi now offers 5 premium mattress ranges which will be on sale exclusively in retail stores from the end of October 2014. Our new Komfi IKON range, which features a new, open cell foam called Aircore, led the re-launch at the NBF Bed Show. This market-leading foam structure increases the breathability of our IKON Duo and IKON Trio mattresses, resulting in temperature regulation throughout the night and enhanced blood circulation.

 

Other models in the new collection include the Komfi Harmony mattresses, which draw on our medical heritage to promote perfect spinal alignment, encourage optimal blood circulation and alleviate pressure on bones and joints.

 

Mike Davies, Managing Director at GNG Group explained: “Our new Komfi range showcases the very latest advances in sleep technology, reflecting our passion and commitment to offering our customers the very best products that can compete at the highest level. We’re confident that we can provide bed retailers with unique, premium quality sleep solutions at extremely competitive price points.”

 

We look forward to updating you on Komfi’s progress!
