Boston-based mattress licensing group Spring Air International has signed agreements with two of its existing partners to expand their territories for distribution in Ohio.
Johnson City Bedding will have responsibility for the southwestern part of the state, and Pennsylvania Bedding will operate in the northeastern counties.
Both family-owned licensees have well-established regions for distribution of Spring Air’s lineup. Johnson City Bedding, which joined the company’s network in 2018, manages Spring Air in Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky and Tennessee. Pennsylvania Bedding, an 11-year Spring Air licensee, distributes the brand in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
With the addition of Ohio, Spring Air now is sold in 48 states through 10 licensees.
“We’re excited to fill in this gap in our domestic geographic footprint with two proven partners that are integral parts of our network,” said Nick Bates, president of Spring Air International. “We want our licensee base to have the first right of refusal when we have new opportunities, and these two companies are the perfect fit.”
“We are pleased to have the opportunity to expand our Spring Air footprint into southwestern Ohio,” said Bob Parker, president of Johnson City Bedding. “This area has a number of well-established furniture and bedding retailers that are perfectly suited to sell the Spring Air brand. Our affiliation with Spring Air has proven to be a great addition for us and we are looking forward to growing the brand even further.”
