Written by HGO Staff   

ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (19 March 2012) - At least seven Canadian firms were among the more than 50 new members that have joined the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) to date this year.

The association said the new members range from start-ups to veteran mattress producers and component suppliers, and includes manufacturers of top-of-bed accessories, who joined ISPA in its new associate member category.

"ISPA is the voice of the mattress and sleep products industry," ISPA chairman Gerry Borreggine, who is also chief executive officer of mattress maker Therapedic International, said in a statement. "Retaining existing members and recruiting new companies is key to keeping our programs vibrant and relevant. This past year, we have worked hard to promote the value of ISPA, and I am thrilled that our membership numbers have returned to pre-recession levels."

The seven Canadian companies joining ISPA for the first time are:

  • Vista Medical, the Winnipeg-based producer of the FSA Retail Mapping System, a point-of-sale system designed to assist floor associates select the best mattress for the customer;
  • P.F. Industries, a Saint-Martin, Quebec-based producer of solid wood frames for mattresses and box springs;
  • Foamco Industries, the Toronto-headquartered producer of the Dreameasy mattress brand;
  • DMM Forest Products, a producer of wood frames for mattresses and box springs based in Rosemere, Quebec;
  • Burgess-Built Machinery, a specialist in "cut to length" mattress border machines, based in the Toronto suburb of Concord, Ontario:
  • Supreme Quilting, a supplier of quilting and sewn covers based in Toronto; and,
  • Spring Air Sommex, the Toronto-headquartered producer of the Spring Air, Sommex and Obusforme mattress brands.
These seven companies join a group of 21 Canadian firms as members of North America's only trade association serving the mattress industry. Two better known Canadian ISPA members are Natura World and Springwall Sleep Products. Natura president Ralph Rossdeutscher currently served on ISPA's board of directors.

"We welcome each of these new companies to ISPA membership," said ISPA president Ryan Trainer.  "We look forward to working with these new member companies and welcome their input and contributions to ISPA's various programs."
