Summary: 
A Romanian mattress manufacturer is looking for business partners interested to cooperate under a manufacturing agreement (e.g. hotel chains) or companies (furniture distributors, bedding retailers, interior designers etc) interested to cooperate under a distribution agreement.

Description

Description: 

Founded in 2012 in Sibiu, the Romanian company started as a small family business producing only a few models of spring core mattresses. Over time, based on the manager's previous experience within the industry and taking into account the market’s demand, the company identified a new niche and expanded its product portfolio by introducing several new products, including the premium and super-premium mattresses. This helped the company to gain market foothold and an important market share within mattresses industry, becoming one of the largest mattresses manufacturers in Transylvania.

Currently the product range includes memory foam mattresses with/without interconnected innerspring systems, orthopaedic mattresses and premium mattresses with independent pocket springs. Also the company produces memory foam mattresses toppers. Each product manufactured in Sibiu can be tailored according to the client’s needs, specifications and dimensions.

In order to ensure better efficiency in the manufacturing process and reduce waste, the company renewed its technologies using EU grants. This investment facilitated the introduction of a new product - the super orthopaedic mattress. This innovative product is made of unique, state-of-the-art Smartcell fabric.

At the moment, the company operates only on the domestic market and its mattresses can be found in many renowned hotels around Romania. The company’s clients include hotel chains and distributors active in the furniture sector.

Taking into account the recent investment in technologies and know how gained within the industry, the company intends to extend at an international level, and therefore it is looking to cooperate under a long term manufacturing agreement with hotels chains interested in custom made products or under a distribution agreement with companies active in the furniture sector.
