Every Sealy mattress is the pinnacle of years of ingenuity and research. It all began in 1881 in Sealy, Texas, when Daniel Haynes, a cotton gin builder, was making cotton-filled mattresses and 15 years later sold his patents to a Texas company that retained the Sealy handle. Soon after, ad exec Earl Edwards penned the slogan “Sleeping on a Sealy is like sleeping on a cloud” and with that, Sealy mattresses became a national phenomenon.
By 1920, Sealy had 23 licensed plants in many regions. Even in the face of the Great Depression they managed to not only stay afloat, but to also introduce a new product – the Button-Free Innerspring.
Sealy continued their quest for the world to sleep better by introducing:
And the achievements in sleep technology continue to this day. Sealy is the No.1 consumer choice and in 2013 Sealy Inc merged with Tempur in the USA to create a company that operates in over 50 countries worldwide.
Sealy South Africa produced its first mattress at its factory in Johannesburg in 1967. The technical innovations introduced by Sealy for improved sleep quickly lead to Posturepedic becoming the top selling brand in South Africa as well (like in the USA.) Sealy Posturepedic is now produced at facilities in Johannesburg, Cape Town and KwaZulu Natal.
All products are manufactured to the specifications set down by Sealy Inc., USA and their consulting orthopaedic surgeons as well as the ISO.9001/2 quality system and is sold only at selected dealers throughout Southern Africa. Sealy is also a leading supplier to the hospitality industry in South Africa.
As one spends more time in bed than doing anything else in the home, it’s critical that the body gets the revitalization it needs to face a new day!
