Gold Bond expands west, south

Since August 2011, mattress manufacturer Gold Bond has opened 50 new accounts, expanding its sales territory south and west of the company’s Hartford, Conn., base. “Retailers at both the Las Vegas Market and High Point Market recognize that the Gold Bond name is synonymous with high-quality, value-priced mattresses—two things that are of the utmost importance to consumers, especially when the economy is in flux,” said Bob Naboicheck, Gold Bond president. “By expanding our sales force, we’ve been able to give Gold Bond a stronger presence in several new markets.” Retail accounts have been added in Florida, Georgia, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, western Pennsylvania, South Carolina and West Virginia.
