EPOC Bedding was established in the East End of London by Joseph James Cope in 1949. The business was founded with one main priority, to build the finest hand made beds possible.

The business began to grow, along with the reputation for the quality of the products. Divan beds were introduced to the product line, creating more positions within the company. Joseph’s son Geoff was introduced to the business in 1962 and was taught the craft of making hand made mattresses and divan beds by his father, using traditional materials and methods.

In 1980 the company moved to Southend in Essex and, in 2007, again to Ipswich in Suffolk but the original ethos and methods still remain to this day.
