Who we are – GB Foam (High Wycombe) Ltd
GB Foam was established in 1976 as an independent polyurethane foam converter, set up initially to satisfy the growing demand for foam conversion or more simply put ‘cutting foam to shape and size’ for the booming High Wycombe furniture industry.
Over the last 40 years the business has expanded and diversified within an ever-changing foam industry, now providing a comprehensive range of specialist foam products to a wide variety of market sectors including – Acoustics and Absorption, Automotive and Aerospace, Bedding and Soft Furnishings, Healthcare and Cosmetics, Medical and Packaging, Lifestyle and Sports and many more.
Our factory is equipped with the latest CNC cutting technology and we employ some of the most talented freehand foam cutters in the industry; we pride ourselves on our attention to detail and our human touch. Our business is run by real people who are passionate about what they do, we like a good challenge so whether you are looking for replacement sofa cushions, upholstery foam or the moon on a stick…..give us a try.
Over 40 years of Foam Cut to Size
GB Foam has always provided a foam cut to size service, but traditionally (well before the internet) this process involved customers visiting our factory trade counter to place an order, taking detailed sizing requirements (by hand) and then later creating a works ticket for our factory to cut the foam from. The foam would then be cut to size and shape, ready for collection by the customer in about 5 days.
We have now removed the need to visit our factory with our very simple to use Online Foam Calculator, this simple tool gives you the ability to order perfect size foam to your door as fast as the next working day.

GB Foam Direct Timeline
We’ve been busy since 1976. From mattresses to acoustic foam, here you can see how the company has evolved since establishing more than 40 years ago.
Throughout the 70’s, most of our services focused solely on the furniture trade. In 1985, we established Gemini Bedding. This was our first mattress store which sold comfy foam mattresses to the people of Buckinghamshire and beyond; “Bed’s & Bunks” and “We Make Beds” followed soon after.
In 1993 we established Möbella. Möbella specialised in the trade and production of superior soft furnishings. This was around the era that MFI flatpack furniture was introduced to Britain. We, however, found that many people still preferred traditional, pre-assembled furniture and so sought to offer a classic solution.
In 2008, we established ourselves online and the first GB Foam website was created; the Gemini bedding website followed just a year after. Two years later, Gemini Bedding was replaced with Lion Mattresses which still runs to this very day. Our Gym Pit Foam website was created in 2013 and in 2014, GB Foam Direct was formed.
GB Foam Direct has rapidly become one of the largest and most popular foam retail websites online. People visit this website daily to purchase foam cut to size for a variety of purposes. Whether that be to replace their sofa cushions or purchase upholstery foam sheets in a fast and effective manner.
We also design, manufacture and supply foam products to the healthcare industry. GB Healthcare was created in 2014, the same year as GB Foam Direct. Our pressure relieving memory foam mattresses are specifically designed to provide relief to those in the greatest need of it.
Other companies formed since this time include GB Foam Packaging, a website which provides bespoke foam packaging inserts and SoundFix, which specialises in acoustic foam products.
