Manna Mattress Deliveries Reflect Increase in Overall Bedding Category

Albert Maruggi - Friday, January 09, 2015

This news is upbeat in the bedding industry with the International Sleep Products Association Bedding Barometer Report showing 9% growth October 2014 over the previous month as reported in Furniture Today by Dave Perry.

Manna National Accounts Manager Dave Tomaschko says he too sees an increase in bedding sales.  Manna mattresses shipments are up 18% year over year.  

Tomaschko mentioned a couple of indicators as helping the Manna numbers, they are:

an improving economy, lower gas prices freeing up disposable income, and a large variety of bedding from prices, to quality, and technology.  When you add those macro market changes to the desire by mattress manufacturers and retailers for quicker delivery times, better in-home customer experience, and some bedding product lines that require specific installation steps, there is greater attention placed on the logistics side of bedding sales.   “It is a dynamic time in the bedding furniture and mattress market,” said Tomaschko.

He also cites the Las Vegas Market building C as an indicator of market health.  The center of the bedding world for a few days at least  in January is Building C at the Las Vegas Market.  It has more than 30 showrooms and 100,000 square feet of space dedicated to the sleep industry,  and it has added more speciality sleep association exhibitors this year. The Manna sales team will be attending Las Vegas Market this month.
