Mebane, NC - Kingsdown started as The Mebane Bedding Company in 1904 and changed its name to Kingsdown some seventy years later.
Today Kingsdown has six manufacturing sites in the United States and several abroad. With three facilities in Australia, and one in the U.K. for all of Scotland, Ireland and all over Europe.
"We've actually grown to an international status, we are probably better known internationally than we are even right here in the local area", says Former Executive Vice President, now Chairman, Tom McLean. "We're shipping to China and Japan, we are shipping to countries that most people think are shipping into the U.S. not the other way around. We're kind of proud of that fact."
The commitment to making a quality product and not a cheaper product has been the driving force at Kingsdown. Kingsdown uses patented technology to ensure that each and every mattress meets and exceeds customer expectations.
McLean points to the extensive testing done, "We have something called the In-Line Support Analysis, this is a machine that actually certifies every mattress going out to make sure that it meets the criteria of what is recommended in the store for a particular person." The company developed technology called "bedmatch" where they can figure out which bed and pillow surface will help you sleep better.
While the company takes great pride in the product they produce they also value the employees that make the mattress. From in an in-house nurse to an exercise facility, this company really does live their brand of 'Sleep To Live'.
