Carolina Mattress Guild has signed a licensing agreement with ApoloSpuma, a Brazilian sleep products manufacturer. The international licensee is the first for Carolina Mattress Guild, marking another growth milestone for the company in 2013.
According to the agreement, ApoloSpuma will not seek to replicate current Carolina Mattress Guild product offerings internationally, but will instead produce an all new luxury line, tailored to their Brazilian market, under the CMG brand.
“They saw the value in the Carolina Mattress Guild name and story, and the power of the family owned business model,” said Phil Grigg, Director of Operations for CMG. “We’re excited to be working with ApoloSpuma, and we’re looking forward to a long, mutually beneficial collaboration.”
“Brazil is an emerging market that is experiencing a lot of growth,” said Ricardo Christofoletti, CEO of ApoloSpuma. “There are many people looking for the best luxury mattresses available, so this partnership is coming at a great time. I am so proud to be a part of this venture.”
