King Koil has signed a license agreement with Florida-based Sleep International LLC to manufacture and distribute King-Koil-branded bedding throughout the state, announced Dave Roberts, King Koil president.
Sleep International, which was launched in early 2012, is headed by industry veterans Steve Antinori, CEO, and Adam Weinman, president. The mattress producer operates a modern mattress manufacturing facility in Tampa. Before launching Sleep International with Weinman three years ago, Antinori was a prominent member of the former Spring Air organization. Weinman had served as president of an adjustable bed company which was owned by the Antinori family.
“We’re very enthused about forming this new partnership with such experienced and talented industry professionals,” noted Roberts. “Together with Sleep International, we look forward to maximizing King Koil’s brand potential in the state of Florida.”

About King Koil: In 1898, Samuel Bronstein realized his dream - he founded United States Bedding in St. Paul, Minnesota. What started out as six employees in a small factory has steadily grown. Throughout the early 1900s, US Bedding added employees, expanded manufacturing and became innovators in the industry. During the 1930s, US Bedding greatly improved the bedspring and was looking for a new name for its product. The King Koil name was born. Today, King Koil mattresses can be found in more than 80 countries throughout the world, with its worldwide headquarters located just outside of Chicago, Illinois.
