Worldwide Headquarters adds Crossfit gym, training center, and more in latest upgrade
Protect-A-Bed, a premier provider of bedding protection products that offer consumers a healthy and comfortable sleep environment, recently enhanced their U.S. headquarters in Wheeling, IL.
The recent updates to the facility and showroom are designed to bring the entire Protect-A-Bed lineup together under one roof. The company added Protect-A-Bed University, which serves as a training center and educational modules for customers; a Crossfit gym and a display of the company’s complete line of products and literature.
Since moving into their current location at 1500 South Wolf Road in Wheeling in 2011, Protect-A-Bed has been in an accelerated growth pattern. Last year, Protect-A-Bed introduced REM-Fit, a collection of bedding and fitness tools designed for the healthy lifestyle, and has been steadily adding to this product line-up.
“As our company and product lines continue to grow, we wanted to ensure that our showroom has a feel of uniformity,” says James Bell, CEO of Protect-A-Bed. “We want all of our customers, no matter where they are located, to have the same high-quality experience when they enter our showroom and engage with our products.”
This uniformity will allow the company to masterfully highlight the Protect-A-Bed brand, while also exhibiting its expanding line of REM-Fit active lifestyle bedding and fitness merchandise.
Protect-A-Bed has a commitment to ongoing effective and convenient training for their retail partners across the United States. Protect-A-Bed University is the latest example. “We’re excited to expand our interactive learning opportunities at our headquarters as well as in the field,” Bell says. “As Protect-A-Bed’s sales teams continue to grow, the need for easily accessible and consistent training has increased.”
In addition to the Wheeling headquarters, which includes 20,000 square feet of office space and 200,000 square feet of warehouse area, Protect-A-Bed also maintains product showrooms in Las Vegas, Chicago and New York City.
