Ergomotion has partnered with distributor 19East to meet the needs of its retailers. The partnership comes after Ergomotion’s former distributor, Archbrook Laguna, filed for bankruptcy protection in August 2011.
19East is led by Bradlee Van Pelt and Clay Krout. Although the principals of Santa Barbara-based Ergomotion have a vested interest in 19East, also based in Santa Barbara, the company is financially and administratively independent, according to both parties.
“The newly formed partnership between Ergomotion and 19East has the ability to provide much needed logistical solutions to the adjustable bed retailer,” Krout said.
