Englander Sleep Products, a mattress licensing group with headquarters in Olive Branch, Miss., has signed a license agreement with Springfield Mattress Co. in Pico Rivera, Calif., to manufacture and market Englander-branded mattresses in Arizona, Nevada and Southern California.
Springfield Mattress, now Englander Southwest, is a family owned and operated mattress maker with a 60,000-square-foot facility west of Los Angeles.
“We’re very pleased to welcome Springfield Mattress to our organization,” said Kevin Toman, Englander Sleep Products president and chief executive officer. “The company is a very successful player in the Southwest U.S. and has a business philosophy that’s consistent with our own—make quality products, maintain a healthy product assortment and offer strong values to retailers. Along with expanding our distribution in the country’s southwest region, Springfield Mattress will bring to our company new bedding manufacturing techniques and creative design concepts that they’ve developed over the years.”
While focusing on Englander-branded bedding starting at $499, Englander Southwest will continue to make and sell its own private-label products, which include innerspring and encased-coil mattresses, specialty foam beds and sleep accessories, such as pillows.
The new licensee has distribution to multiple sleep chains, independent furniture stores and single-outlet sleep shops, Toman said, which “leads us to anticipate healthy sales gains for our company in the near future.”
