BED manufacturer Myer’s is making a mattress fit for the Queen for an event celebrating the best of British industry.

The Huntingdon firm holds a Royal Warrant of Appointment, meaning it has supplied goods to Royal households for at least five years.

It is one of 200 companies granted the accolade invited to showcase their skills at the Coronation Festival, at Buckingham Palace, from July 11-14.

The festival is being held to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s reign.

Myer’s was founded by Horatio Myer in 1876 and the Huntingdon factory opened in 1962.

It was bought by Steinhoff International, in March, in a multi-million pound deal, safeguarding more than 250 jobs.
