Sealy Mattress Company

North America's Top Bedding Manufacturer

Sealy Mattress Corporation, North America's largest manufacturer of bedding traces, has been serving the industry for about 125 years.

They have been manufacturing top of the line mattress collections like Sealy Posturepedic, SpringFree and TrueForm.

The company also owns the Stearns and Foster brand.

Company History

Their mattresses have established a name in the market all thanks to a guy named Daniel Haynes. He founded the company in 1889 in the town of Sealy, Texas.

Daniel Haynes was a cotton gin manufacturer who got the idea to make a mattress filled with cotton.

People were impressed so he went on to engineer a machine that compressed cotton for use in his mattress.

He patented his invention and was very successful selling his product throughout Texas. It became known as "the mattress from Sealy" and that's how the company got it's name.

The company grew quickly until the Great Depression came along and nearly wiped it out. the eight largest Sealy licensees had to join together and buy the company to save it from going bankrupt.

Things turned around after the Depression and they introduced a new type of mattress called the Button Free Innerspring.

The company launched the first Sealy Posturepedic mattresses in the 1950's. They also were the first to start selling king size beds.

They continued to gain popularity through the 70's when they pushed for further developments in the technology by incorporating new coils in the springs used for support.

The Company Today

Right up to the present day, they've continued improving the quality of the Sealy mattress. The company has maintained their number one status in North America for the last 30 years.

For an in-depth examination of their current product line check out our section on Sealy Mattress Reviews.

They have extended operations to Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe, achieving a worldwide status in the economy. In the United States alone, they own a total of 17 bedding plants.

Sealy is not afraid to assure people of good quality sleep when it comes to their products. They strive to give their customers the kind of sleep that they deserve, waking up ready for a wonderful day ahead.

To help reach this goal they have manufactured different products suited for different needs. In addition to a wide variety of mattresses they offer other bedding products including Sealy pillows, comforters and mattress pads.
