Sealy is the biggest bed brand in the world and has been steadily growing for over 100 years.
In 2013 Sealy Inc merged with Tempur in the USA to create a company that operates in over 50 countries worldwide. Their beds and mattresses can be found everywhere from Canada to Japan, from Brazil to South America and from South Korea to here in the UK where they have operated for the last forty years.
It’s hard to believe that a multi-national brand such as Sealy originated in the small town of Sealy, Texas just outside of Houston. A cotton gin builder and operator by the name of Daniel Haynes responded to a request from a neighbour and built a cotton-filled mattress in 1881. The product was so favourably received that Haynes began receiving more and more requests from neighbours and relatives. Encouraged by the response, Haynes invented a machine that compressed cotton for use in mattresses and received a patent for his invention in 1889. The acceptance for the product grew beyond the local area in Texas and in 1906, Haynes sold all of his patents and know-how to a Texas Company that took the name of Sealy.
Today Sealy employs around 330 people and can make a staggering 3,500 mattresses a week from their 160,000 sq ft factory and a Sealy bed is sold somewhere in the world every three seconds!
Sealy invests more time and money on product development than any other bed manufacturer, utilising state-of-the-art facilities at the world’s largest and most advanced research and development centre and bed testing laboratory in Greensboro, North Carolina. This is in addition to the Silentnight Group’s own research and development resource at Barnoldswick in Lancashire.
