Leggett & Platt Inc.’s machinery division, Global Systems Group, now is the global sales agent for gluing machinery manufacturer Quarrata Forniture Srl, based in Quarrata, Italy.
GSG will market Quarrata’s lineup of advanced roll-coat and spray-coat machinery, heat-dryer equipment and other systems to bedding manufacturers.
Quarrata is an established company with a reputation for producing high-quality machinery for foam-encased and layered-foam mattress constructions, according to a news release from Carthage, Missouri-based L&P. Quarrata’s products will strengthen and diversify GSG’s existing offerings in the category.
“We are extremely pleased with the new opportunities this affiliation with GSG represents,” said Roberto Trovi, Quarrata principal. “We anticipate that working with the leading international supplier of mattress equipment will provide great growth and stronger customer relationships.”
GSG President Tony Garrett said, “(We are) constantly seeking new ways to better serve our customers through improved mattress manufacturing methods, and partnering with Quarrata will enable us to provide a variety of proven equipment for greater efficiencies in their gluing processes.”
