A Swedish-Swiss co-operation: Hilding Anders, with headquarters in Malmö, is the leading manufacturer of beds in Europe. The company celebrated the opening of their Good Night’s Sleeplab in Swiss Schänis on October 14th 2014.This is the first test centre that will use four parameters – ergonomics, hygiene, bed climate and durability – to test mattresses. The ambition is to guide consumers to the one mattress that suits their individual needs perfectly. The Swiss AEH institute is going to control test methods and results of Good Night’s Sleeplab and certify Hilding Anders’ products. Swedish Ambassador Magnus Hartog-Holm characterized the collaboration between a leading Swedish company and a renowned Swiss Institute as a "perfect marriage". Alex Myers, CEO of Hilding Anders, sees the € 1.25 million investment in an own test centre situated in Switzerland as “the most important brick to bring us one step closer to fulfilling our ambitions in giving the world a good night’s sleep”.
