Following the acquisition, Bear Mattress will continue to operate under its brand name and be led by its founder and chief executive officer, Scott Paladini.
“We are thrilled to welcome Scott and the Bear Mattress team to our growing Brooklyn-Helix platform,” said John Merwin, chief executive officer of Brooklyn Bedding. “This acquisition solidifies our goal of building a house of exceptional brands backed by our world-class, vertically integrated manufacturing facility. Bear Mattress’s expertise in the sleep-wellness mattress segment, along with our cutting-edge manufacturing, technology and digital capabilities, will allow us to scale further as one of the industry’s leading DTC platforms.”
