Leggett & Platt steps up focus on retail sleep products

Carthage, Mo.–based industry supplier Leggett & Platt has consolidated its direct–to–retail sleep products and services under a single umbrella. Its Consumer Products Group, which also manages the design, development, manufacturing and marketing of sleep accessories, is overseeing operation of the company’s adjustable bed division, Adjustables by Leggett & Platt.

That division’s sales training team is now responsible for training on all Consumer Products Group brands, which include Leggett & Platt Home Collection, Fashion Bed Group and Southern Textiles. Consumer Products Group also introduced this year the Leggett & Platt Retail Solution, a set of retailer tools that includes point–of–purchase systems, marketing materials, sales training and performance management systems.

“CPG has a renewed focus on serving retailers and helping them meet their customers’ needs,” said Rob Woods, Consumer Products Group president. “We are committed to providing our customers and retailers with highly effective sales performance enhancing tools and training resources.”
