Pleasant Mattress is joining Eclipse International and Eastman House as the group’s newest California licensee. Poised to continue expanding its coalition, this new agreement grows Eclipse International/Eastman House’s stable of licensees to 61.
“Pleasant Mattress is one of the country’s real gems in terms of independent manufacturers, and we are thrilled to have them join our network,” said Stuart Carlitz, CEO of Eclipse. “They not only provide important new reach for our brand on the West Coast, but also give us great strength some new and emerging technologies that all our licensees will be able to benefit from.”
As part of the agreement, Pleasant Mattress will produce a newly designed bed-in-a-box program for Eclipse International and Eastman House licensees. Pleasant will now also include Eclipse and Eastman products as part of their lineup. According to Rion Morgenstern, president and CEO of Pleasant Mattress, the affiliation with Eclipse International gives the company a broader range of products and brands to sell to its customers.
“As an independent manufacturer, having targeted product diversity in our quiver will make us more effective in expanding our relationships with new and existing customers,” he said. “Much like Pleasant Mattress, Eclipse has a rich history of manufacturing steeped in tradition and entrepreneurship. We share a common heritage and culture that I believe will benefit both our companies for the long term.”
It comes as no surprise that Eclipse International/Eastman House has selected Pleasant Mattress as its latest licensee as they search exclusively for highly experienced, well-established manufacturers. With this new partnership, both are expected to enhance their reputations as quality bedding manufacturers consumers can depend on and trust.
