London Bridge Linens celebrates 25 years
June 11, 2004,
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."
