Mattress licensing group Englander has named John Hagglund chairman. He is president of Tualatin Sleep Products, Englander’s licensee for the Northwest. The manufacturer has production facilities in Tualatin, Ore., and Stockton, Calif. It has been an Englander licensee since 1985.
“Under John’s leadership, Englander will continue its success in product development,” said Kevin Toman, Englander president. “Manufacturing in the Northwest has given John a great handle on ‘green’ and Englander will continue its dominance in that arena.”
Hagglund replaces Chuck Warshaver, president of World Sleep Products in Billerica, Mass., which serves the Northeast for Englander.
Englander’s seven U.S. licensees bought the brand from La–Z–Boy in 2005 and, at that time, established a management committee with a rotating chairmanship.
