Within Beter Bed Holding N.V. and its operating companies, corporate social responsibility and healthy business practices go hand in hand. In Beter Bed Holding’s vision, its subsidiaries make a positive contribution to the society in which they operate.

To us, growth is much more than investing in more revenue. We firmly believe that this vision does not just benefit our results and reputation but also provides greater satisfaction in what we do. We do not only want to do things right but also and especially want to do the right things, in a financially sound manner.’
