About Us & Why We are
The Best For Foam

George Danby & Son Ltd, a family business, was established by George and his son Pete in 1959 and soon became the Midlands sole stockist of Dunlopillo.

In the 1960’s expansion was achieved with the introduction of polyurethane foams when the company branched out to supply the upholstery trade from its sites in Frog Island and then Whetstone, Leicester. After Pete Danby retired, in the mid nineties, we moved to a larger site in Barwell, Leicestershire and started a phase of expansions that culminated in the investment of two state of the art Baumer CNC machines adding to the existing machinery enabling us to venture into different industries introducing new and innovative products to our existing products list.
