New Jersey-based Eclipse International and Eastman House, two of the nation’s oldest mattress companies, have teamed with Sleep Designs to manufacture and donate twin mattresses for use in shelters for people displaced by Hurricane Harvey.
Sleep Designs, the companies’ Texas licensee, has the capacity to make enough mattresses to fill multiple tractor-trailers. The companies’ suppliers might also help with the donation.
“The Houston community is in dire need of assistance, and we’re here to do whatever it is we can do to help,” Stuart Carlitz, president and CEO of Eclipse International and Eastman House, said in an announcement.
“So many people have been flooded out of their homes, work places and schools for the foreseeable future and they need help. We have a community in need, and the fact that the factory is dry and operational gives us the ability to pitch in and make a difference. Our goal is to provide a comfortable place to sleep for as many people as possible during this disaster.”
The companies have contacted the Federal Emergency Management Agency to determine the quantity needed and best locations for the mattresses.
The owner of HMR, Ryan Monahan, has previously held himself out to the public and the court as independent and unbiased. However, the Federal District Court has found that Monahan has a significant business relationship with GhostBed and its CEO, Marc Werner, from which Monahan derives significant income. The Court also found that HMR has been consistently favorable to GhostBed, and unfairly critical of Purple’s products, one of GhostBed’s primary competitors.
