Sealy’s dedication to help the world sleep better started in 1881 when Daniel Haynes, a cotton gin builder, filled a request for a cotton filled mattress. The Sealy, TX, native quickly watched his mattress orders grow exponentially, leading to more innovations and several patents. Daniel Haynes sold his patents to a Texas-based company that kept the Sealy name fifteen years later.
Shortly after, executive Earl Edwards penned the famous slogan, “Sleeping on a Sealy is like sleeping on a cloud.”Since then, the company has experienced several milestones, including the introduction of the popular Sealy Posturepedic mattress and the introduction of the king-sized bed, being the first mattress company to display and advertise one. WG&R Sleep Shop stocks an impressive lineup of Sealy mattresses so that you too can know what sleeping on a cloud feels like.
The founder of the Simmons brand is nearly as well-known as the mattresses his company produces. It all started on April 16, 1871, when the teacher, businessman and former mayor Zalmon G. Simmons purchased a cheese box factory in Kenosha, WI, that also made wooden telegraph insulators for his telegraph company. As payment for a debt at his store, Simmons accepted a handmade, woven-wire bedspring patent.
Thus, the Simmons legacy of mattress making was born. In 1884, the company was incorporated as the Northwestern Wire Mattress Company; five years later, the name was changed to Simmons Manufacturing Company. When Simmons died in 1910, his son, Zalmon Simmons, Jr., took over his father’s duties and continued the company’s expansion. By 1919, the company had 64 warehouses and coast-to-coast manufacturing plants.In 1925, the company introduced the Simmons Beautyrest mattress, which quickly became its best selling product. 89 years later the newest models in the Beautyrest line continue to revolutionize sleep. You can experience the Simmons Beautyrest and other Simmons products right here at the WG&R Sleep Shop.
Tempur-Pedic’s story started in the early 1970s with the development of a pressure-absorbing material at NASA that would help cushion and support astronauts during lift off. The material was unique because it was pressure sensitive and evenly distributed body weight. It wasn’t until the 1980s that the material was released to the public, which is when it ended up in the hands of a couple of Swedish scientists at the helm of a merge between Sweden’s Fagerdala and Denmark’s Dan-Foam. For nearly a decade, these scientists perfected the TEMPUR material for use in mattresses.
In 1992, Lexington, KY, resident Bob Trussell visited Denmark and met with the scientists. With the realization that he could bring this technology back to the US to help people sleep better, Trussell started Tempur-Pedic. Tempur-Pedic built facilities in Duffield, VA, and added a second fabrication plant in Albuquerque, NM. Eventually, a merger occurred between Tempur-Pedic and Dan-Foam, creating a global company headquartered in Lexington that focused on a growing line of sleep products.Tempur-Pedic has a single focus – help people sleep better. Here at WG&R Sleep Shop, we want to help you sleep better, too, which is why we carry and highly recommend the Tempur-Pedic mattress for the ultimate sleep experience.
