Englander Adds New Central America-Based Licensee to Growing International Reach

EnglanderLogoEnglander Sleep Products has signed a license agreement with Ultra Industrias, S.A., based in the city of Guatemala, enabling the mattress producer to manufacture and market Englander-branded products across Central America, announced company president and CEO Kevin Toman.

The bedding manufacturer, founded in 1983, has been owned and managed by Edgar Solares and Luis Pedro Solares since 1988.

Ultra Industrias operates a 130,000-square-foot factory and makes its own foam, spring and wood components.  The company also owns its own transportation firm and sells mattresses across the contiguous countries of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

“Our new Central America partner is an extremely experienced and independent producer,” noted Toman.  “Ultra Industrias employs 135 persons and manufactures between 800 and 1,000 pieces per day and up to 10,000 pieces per month.

“In the future the company plans to expand into other countries within the region.”

Englander Central America will make and market several Englander-branded collections while continuing to produce its own bedding lines.
