Inventors of three dimensional, fine wire micro pocket springs, Spinks Springs are a pocket spring manufacturer specialising in the creation of unique low height pocket springs which offer unparalleled levels of comfort. Our low height pocket springs are extremely versatile and our principles of comfort technology can be applied to a wide range of products, from furniture and mattresses, to automotive seating and even footwear.

We even draw our own wire in-house from steel rod, which allows us to produce thinner wire than is commercially available within the market and consequently we have been able to produce smaller springs. Our continuous investment in technology has allowed us to become one of the leading suppliers of quality components in the world.
