Chelsea, Massachusetts-based mattress licensing group Spring Air International is parting ways with Corsicana Mattress Co. as part of a shift in its licensing strategy back to independent producers with smaller, defined territories.
Corsicana, a major producer of promotional and moderately priced mattresses headquartered in Corsicana, Texas, has been the Spring Air licensee for the western half of the United States since 2009. The partnership between Spring Air and Corsicana will end Aug. 31.
Spring Air said in a news release it will announce new manufacturing partners in the next few months.
“When you look at our network of domestic licensees, the strongest contributors to our brand have been the healthy regional independents,” said Nick Bates, president of Spring Air. “They really share our vision and make full use of the products and services that we have to offer.”
Spring Air’s network of seven U.S. licensees includes Pleasant Mattress in Fresno, California, owned and managed by the Morgenstern family; Spring Air Massachusetts in Chelsea, owned by Ed Bates; and Spring Air Greensboro, owned and managed by the Grove family.
