Lake Havasu City, Ariz. – This week marks a milestone for institutional bedding manufacturer London Bridge Linens as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. Owners Gary and Carole Hettick started their business in 1979, after relocating from Seattle.
"We began in a modest 10-by-10 storage building across from our current location with one employee who worked two hours each morning sewing mattress pads," explained Gary Hettick. "When she finished, we would call waterbed retailers, trying to sell what had been sewn that day."
Today, London Bridge Linens, with its staff of 22 employees, supplies the hospitality industry with mattress pads, sheets, bedspreads and specialized linens. Clients include cruise ships, hospitals, health care facilities, prisons, college dormitories, specialty linen shops and waterbed stores.
