Sleep Better spurs Carpenter growth

Richmond, VA — Sleep Better manufacturer Carpenter Co. will nearly triple its capacity this market, after growing at a rate of 40 percent the first half of the year, preceded by double-digit growth in each of the previous four years.

The supplier and manufacturer of bedding products designed to enhance sleep has taken its Sleep Better products to the U.K., France, Germany, Denmark and Sweden.

"We are growing our business in all areas requiring us to increase our capacity for all of our businesses in the consumer area," explained Dan Schecter, vp, sales and marketing at Carpenter. The company is adding a total of eight high-speed quilters and 15 garnets (machines that pull and rack fibers) to its plants and increasing its capacity for form and foam-related products.

Carpenter's most recent expansion in Elkhart, IN, features a full-blown consumer facility for foam and polyester products. In addition, the company just completed the transition to a new operating system that offers more management and manufacturing tools in order to make certain it can provide the best possible service to its customers worldwide.
