He is a 20-year company veteran who has worked with many of the Carthage, Missouri-based manufacturer’s diverse businesses on financial, strategic and operational initiatives.
In his new role, Hagale leads the Bedding Products segment, which includes Steel Rod, Drawn Wire, U.S. Spring, Specialty Foam, Adjustable Bed (known collectively as the domestic bedding value chain), and all bed- and spring-making machinery.
