Sleep accessories supplier American Textile Co., with headquarters in Duquesne, Pennsylvania, has expanded its licensing relationship with Tempur Sealy International Inc. American Textile now has the right to manufacture and sell Sealy-branded pillows, mattress pads and comforters.
The first products are slated to ship to retailers on April 1, 2018.
The deal deepens a growing partnership between American Textile and the Lexington, Kentucky-based mattress major. In 2012, the two inked an agreement for the manufacture of Sealy-branded mattress and pillow protectors. Earlier this year, Tempur Sealy granted the company the right to develop and distribute Tempur-Pedic branded sleep accessories. Products include sheets, mattress pads, protectors, blankets and comforters.
“We’ve seen such a strong consumer response to the Sealy brand with protectors and sheets, it seems natural to expand our Sealy partnership and bring a full range of bedding products into more homes under the trusted Sealy name,” said Blake Ruttenberg, executive vice president of sales, marketing and product development at American Textile. “We are constantly working to deliver the best sleep environment, and consumers have long trusted Sealy to deliver innovation that helps them sleep better.”
In addition to Tempur-Pedic and Sealy accessories, American Textiles makes its own AllerEase line of protectors.
