Business Description

Belfield is the UK’s largest white label manufacturer of home furnishings and one of Europe’s largest manufacturers specialising in the wholesale and distribution of products including upholstered furniture, soft furnishings, mattresses and curtains.

NorthEdge Investment Rationale

Belfield operates in the furniture, furnishings and bedding sector, which is currently worth around £3.5bn in the UK.


With support from NorthEdge, the company will focus on its UK position to drive shorter lead times for customers; continue to deliver its collaborative design-led offering and leverage economies of scale to compete on price.

John Rastrick, Partner and Head of Yorkshire and the North East at NorthEdge, said: “Belfield is the largest white label manufacturer of home furnishings in the UK with an impressive customer base ranging from British high street names and national blue chip brands to high growth online retailers. We have been impressed with the ability of the management team to manufacture in high volumes such a broad range of quality products. It is down to their design expertise and operational efficiency that the business has achieved such a strong offering in a sizeable and highly fragmented market.

“Our focus will be on helping Belfield to grow sales with existing customers, as well as targeting new opportunities and we are looking forward to working with Steve and the management team.”
