At the 2022 Yorkshire Society Awards, John Cotton Group were awarded the Business Enterprise Award for Outstanding efforts in business enterprise within the county. For over 30 years, the Yorkshire Awards have recognised organisations and businesses who’ve made an impact on Yorkshire and its people, demonstrating their affection for, and a real commitment to, the region.

A family-run company established in 1916, John Cotton Group have pioneered home textile and non-woven fibre production for over a century. Headquartered in Yorkshire and with operations around the globe, the group is the UK’s largest producer of filled bedding products and prides itself on its ethos of quality and sustainability. Across the group, an estimated 1.7 billion plastic bottles have been diverted from landfill and transformed into products found in homes across the UK.

“We are honoured to have been recognised for our commitment and efforts to both our business and our County. For over a century John Cotton Group has pioneered Home Textile and Nonwoven fibre production from our head office in Yorkshire, and we take great pride in being a Yorkshire-based business.

The Yorkshire Awards have been the preeminent awards recognising people and businesses who have had a positive impact upon Yorkshire and its people for over three decades, and we are delighted to have been acknowledged alongside some other incredible award winners.”
