The OTTY team were celebrating earlier this week after picking up the Small Online Retailer of the Year award at the prestigious NBF Industry Awards, which took place in Telford this week.
In its eighth year, the highly sought-after accolade is chosen by an independent panel of judges, and recognises the companies considered as ‘best-in-class’ over the past year
OTTY was praised for its growing standing in the mattress-in-a-box marketplace, as well as its growth over the past twelve months, which has seen the company launch into Europe for the first time. This move has helped OTTY to double the number of staff at its Leeds-based headquarters as a result of the increasing demand.
Judges also praised the company’s ability to create a competitively-priced product that stands out from an increasingly saturated market.
CEO Michal Szlas said: “It has been a huge year for OTTY in terms of growth, and it’s one that has seen a huge increase in product demand. Ultimately, this has allowed us to gain a strong foothold in the UK market and break into Europe for the first time.
“The mattress-in-a-box market is hugely competitive, so we’re thrilled to have been recognised for our hard work. It really is a testament to our small team – all of whom strive to bring the best sleeping options to the customers.
“We’re all delighted to be recognised for our ability to bring a cost-effective and innovative product to the market, which ultimately to give people from all walks of life a better night’s sleep. Thanks to everyone who has supported us in our journey so far, and here’s to the next twelve months!”
