Heritage Sleep Concepts, the Southeastern licensee for mattress brands Eclipse International and Eastman House, has tripled its manufacturing footprint with its move into a new 120,000-square-foot factory in Rome, Georgia. The additional space was needed to accommodate the manufacturer’s growth with regional retail powerhouses like Farmer’s Home Furniture and Macys.
The company had outgrown its previous 40,000-square-foot factory. The company can produce about 1,200 mattresses a day in the new facility.
“Our family has strong roots in the mattress industry, and our growth over the last four years with the Eclipse and Eastman House brands has been incredible,” said Frankie Beck, managing partner of Heritage Sleep Concepts. “The move will allow us to better serve our customer base of strong bedding retailers. As we move into our centennial year, we are looking forward to continued growth.”
Beck attributes the solidification of Heritage Sleep Concepts as one of the fastest growing, independent bedding resources in the Southeast to the company’s partnership with Eclipse and Eastman House.
“We’ve been working with Heritage Sleep for five years; joining forces with them when the family returned to the bedding business,” said Stuart Carlitz, president and chief executive of Eclipse International. “The company, the family and the management team are great partners to help us expand our business in the Southeast.”
