Iconic Kiwi brand, Comfort Group plans new development at Ohinewai
The country’s leading bed-maker and home of iconic Kiwi brand Sleepyhead, The Comfort Group, has confirmed plans to develop a unique manufacturing hub and community in Ohinewai, North Waikato.
When completed this is anticipated to create 1,500 new jobs and 1,100 new homes over the next ten years.
The company recently announced that it has purchased 176-hectares of land, adjoining the existing Ohinewai Village, five kilometres north of Huntly, which it plans to transform into a mixed-use, planned community of up to 3,000 residents.
The Comfort Group, which includes the Sleepyhead, SleepMaker and Dunlop Foams brands, plans to relocate its two Auckland manufacturing sites over the next few years into a new 100,000 square metre state of the art factory it will build on the site, which will employ up to 1,000 people once complete.
Envivo’s Planning and Structural Engineering teams are pleased to have assisted the Comfort Group with the initial site investigation and feasibility and structural design concepts for the manufacturing plant.
