The Bedmax Values

Horse Welfare

Our main priority since the beginning. The very core of everything we do and the reason we began producing  Bedmax.


We strive to help owners help their horses through research, product trialling and knowledge sharing to raise the profile of equine welfare in the stable.

The Environment

As a company, we are continually striving to minimise our impact on the environment, and to recycle as much of our waste as we can.


We source our pine timber entirely from sustainable UK forestry. For every tree that is cut down, a new one is planted.

Supporting Retailers

We only supply our products through our network of loyal supplier customers.


We pride ourselves on being innovative industry leaders at the forefront of what we do.


Community spirit is at the heart of everything we do; both our local community and the equine community.

Research & Development

Through continual research we ceaselessly strive to improve and perfect our bespoke bedding products.
