Our Head Office

Our Head Office

A creative brand needs a creative place to work, and our Head Office delivers just that. Located in Huddersfield, where Mamas & Papas itself was born over 35 years ago, it’s a contemporary open-plan space designed to embody the brand values as well as provide a tailor-made setting for its day-to-day needs.

Wherever you go throughout the three-story building – from our unique food and social hub, Cibo, to the spectacular showroom – you’ll find a friendly, collaborative atmosphere. What’s more, all our facilities are specifically designed to help you do your job brilliantly. We have a purpose-built Head Office, our own UK-accredited Test Lab, a Mock Shop, a fully equipped VM studio and free parking and Wi-Fi.

This is where the ideas are first hatched, where sketches become prototypes and first product concepts are made. It’s where dispatch and sales ship our products around the world, and where all the big company decisions are made. And you could be here, helping to make them.
