Innovation and Technology

Innovation is the beating heart inside our organization.

It doesn’t just live inside our labs, but is harnessed everywhere – in the development of new relationships, in the advancement of our processes, and in the transformation of ideas into tangible solutions for our customers. We experience no greater reward than when our innovations in polyurethane foam serve as the core foundation for game-changing advancements in products that touch the lives of consumers.

Our innovations and expertise push beyond the actual chemistry of our foams. What sets us apart is our extensive consumer testing and insights, which enable us to provide our customers with strategic guidance about the best applications for our solutions. Our solid understanding of consumer preferences and desires also allows us to collaborate closely with our customers on the next big breakthroughs in the industries they serve.

Like our manufacturing network, our innovation team spans the United States, and we are proud to connect the brainpower of our employees, our customers and our vendors from coast to coast to cultivate the freshest and most innovative ideas. We encourage everyone on our team to think openly and creatively to spark inspiration, and to keep our pipeline filled with extraordinary solutions that deliver unbeatable quality, comfort and durability for a wide range of applications.

Intellectual Property

Our team is always working on something new – a foam, an application or a process technology – and we believe strongly in the protection of intellectual property to recognize and reward the value of innovation. We are proud to be the pioneers of the original mattress-in-a-box, which has enabled the mattress industry to think "inside the box" to make mattress shipping a cinch for both manufacturers and customers alike. We are also the innovators behind gel-based memory foam – a technology that we have continued to advance with unique and ground-breaking performance benefits that bring a whole new level of comfort and luxury to bedding components and other essential consumer products.

As a reliable partner, we also treat our customers’ intellectual property with the utmost respect and discretion. Our team has decades of experience in customizing our operations to deliver the unique – and often patent-protected – designs you require, while maintaining the strictest confidentiality of your respected trade secrets.
