Serta Simmons Bedding to Develop Mattress-In-A-Box Offerings for Its Leading Brands
Enters into strategic partnership with Sinomax USA
New products will be available across all distribution channels for retailer partners
ATLANTA (June 6, 2017) – Serta Simmons Bedding, LLC (“SSB”), the largest manufacturer and distributor of mattresses in the United States, announced today a three-year strategic partnership with Sinomax USA to develop new mattress-in-a-box offerings for SSB’s Serta® and Beautyrest® brands. These new products will be offered for sale through current and prospective retailer channels.
The new offerings, which will be manufactured and assembled in the United States, will be a first in the category for Beautyrest nationally and will replace, and make more widely available, the current Serta mattress-in-a-box offering.
“As the industry leader, it’s critical that we proactively provide our retail partners with innovative products that are available across all distribution channels,” said Michael Traub, SSB Chief Executive Officer. “Our partnership with Sinomax USA will provide mattress-in-a-box offerings, with compelling value and at various prices, for consumers who seek differentiated shopping experiences with our retail partners.”
Sinomax USA is a leading global manufacturer and distributor that specializes in innovative memory foam technology products. The company will provide the foam for the mattress-in-a-box mattresses, pillows and toppers, all of which will be manufactured at the company’s new automated facility in Nashville, Tennessee. The offerings will be available as early as July 2017.
“We are pleased to partner with the leading bedding company in the United States on this exciting growth opportunity,” said Frank Chen, Sinomax USA Chief Executive Officer. “Sinomax looks forward to supporting the Serta and Beautyrest brands’ growth with these new mattress-in-a-box offerings that are manufactured in our Nashville facility, which has been recognized by the state of Tennessee for significant new job creation.”
“SSB will continue to collaborate and innovate with our strategic partners as part of our unwavering commitment to our retail partners,” said Traub. “These new offerings from the country’s best-selling mattress brands will continue to help retailers succeed and grow their business.”
