“Sun Capital has deep experience in the bedding market, most notably with bedding product retailer Mattress Firm, which was successfully exited in 2007 at an attractive return,” said Marc Leder, Co-Chief Executive Officer at Sun Capital. “Sleep Innovations will benefit from our extensive experience in the bedding and retail industries as the company looks to continue on a growth path.”
Sleep Innovations manufactures standard and specialty polyurethane foam sold to end markets for use in bedding, furniture, auto, packaging and consumer products, and to be sold through the company’s retail division. Sleep Innovations products can be found in multiple retail outlets including warehouse clubs, department stores, and through e-commerce sites. The company’s retail brands include Novaform, Bodipedic and Sleep Innovations, and it also sells products under licensed and private retail brands. The company is headquartered in West Long Branch, NJ (www.sleepinnovations.com).
