(ATLANTA – August 26, 2013) – Simmons Bedding Company and its Hospitality Division
(“Simmons Hospitality”) announce today the implementation of a new mattress recycling program. The company recently partnered with Global Sustainability Solutions (“GSS”) to handle recycling services for hospitality sales. This initiative marks one of the most significant milestones in Simmons’ sustainability efforts.

The new Simmons Hospitality/GSS program will provide mattress installation, removal and recycling services, including delivery coordination and installation of the new product, as well as removal and transportation of the old bed sets – including bedframes – to a designated recycling plant.

Under this new program, hospitality clientele purchasing new product from Simmons, such as the new Simmons Hospitality Beautyresty® Recharge® line, are offered the option of recycling their old mattresses through purchasing GSS’ services. The company offers complete turnkey service (including installation, removal and recycling), as well as removal and recycling services only.

“Simmons’ partnership with GSS gives our hospitality clients a cost-­‐effective, hassle-­‐free recycling option that dually streamlines the replacement process and battles landfill waste,” says Steve Tipton, Vice President of Simmons Hospitality. “Through this partnership, we are proudly taking an active role in developing viable solutions to the mattress disposal dilemma.”

Mattress recycling has gained traction in recent months, with states working with the International Sleep Products Association to find green solutions for mattress disposal. Earlier this summer, Connecticut passed the nation’s first recycling bill, requiring industry-­‐led nonprofit organizations to develop a mattress-­‐recycling plan by July 2014. The California State Senate also approved a bill, which, if passed by the California Assembly, creates a state-­‐run nonprofit organization that would coordinate mattress recycling statewide.

“Old mattresses are nearly 100 percent recyclable, which essentially means that our industry produces one of the most sustainable products in the marketplace. The new state-­‐sponsored programs and legislation lay a great foundation for industry-­‐wide policy change, and we hope sustainability initiatives like Simmons’ encourage other bedding manufacturers to pick up the torch as well. Through our new hospitality recycling program, Simmons is doing its part to give hotel owners and brands an environmentally-­‐friendly option for mattress disposal and ultimately further the fight for more sustainable industry conventions,” says Tipton.

(ATLANTA – May 10, 2013) – Simmons Bedding Company and its Hospitality Division (“Simmons Hospitality”) announces a new strategic partnership between the bedding company and Applied Textiles (“Applied”), the maker of Nano-Tex® high-performance stain protection technology. The arrangement grants Simmons Hospitality the exclusive privilege of using the stain-repelling treatment Nano-Tex® for the Division’s new Recharge Beautyrest® models, introduced at next week’s 2013 Hospitality Design Expo and Conference in Las Vegas.

“The partnership between Simmons Hospitality and Applied Textiles is a perfect marriage of two outstanding products – our legendary Beautyrest Pocketed Coil® spring mattresses and Nano-Tex® technology,” said Steve Tipton, Vice President of Simmons Hospitality.  “Given the stress that most hotel mattresses undergo, this new Nano-Tex®-treated layer adds an enhanced level of stain-resistant protection and preserves the quality of our mattresses. Our partnership with this excellent product enables Simmons to provide a better, more protected product to our customers.”

Nano-Tex® – originally developed for use on apparel in 2000 – has become the leading fabric sealant in the “Top of Bed” segment of the hospitality bedding industry, providing superior stain protection in harsh, heavily trafficked commercial environments. During factory production, the bedding fabric is pre-treated with the stain-resistant product, which covalently bonds to the fiber of the fabric to prevent stains by repelling various dirt and spills, including wine, coffee, blood and urine.

This highly breathable, safe treatment includes no PFOA, formaldehyde or VOCs and is used by some of the world’s most trafficked industries, including healthcare, education, entertainment, and, of course, hospitality. The spray treatment is guaranteed to last the life of the fabric, saving hotels time and money on continuous maintenance and replacement costs. .

The companies’ agreement gives Simmons exclusive use of Nano-Tex® technology during the launch period; all new Simmons Hospitality Recharge Beautyrest® mattresses will be treated with the technology.

(ATLANTA – May 10, 2013) –Simmons Bedding Company and its Hospitality Division (“Simmons Hospitality”) announces the introduction of the new Recharge Beautyrest® designed to help manage temperature, promoting Recharging Sleep for weary travelers who need to Live Life Fully Charged™. The new models will debut at the 2013 Hospitality Design Expo and Conference in Las Vegas.

In this latest evolution of the company’s flagship product, Simmons Hospitality promises guests a recharging sleep experience through exceptional durability, support, undisturbed sleep and designs to help manage temperature.

“When hotel guests experience a restful night’s sleep, everything’s just better. The room feels larger. The food tastes tastier. The service seems friendlier—and on it goes. So to say a bed only affects how your guests sleep is only telling part of the story,” said Steve Tipton, Vice President of Simmons Hospitality.  “Their sleep experience influences how they perceive their entire stay. No other item you purchase for your customers wields the power a bed does. It is the foundation of a successful property. So, why choose anything but the best? Beautyrest.”

The new Recharge Beautyrest® features a proprietary EverNU® replaceable mattress top and EnduroTECH™ foundation, protecting the mattress from the ground up to ensure exceptional mattress durability. Most hotels replace their mattresses every seven years, with most replacements occurring because the mattresses’ comfort level have deteriorated over time, causing the beds to lose their initial plush feel. Designed to help hotels get the most out of their mattresses, the EverNu® zip-off topper allows hotels to refresh their guests’ sleep experience by replacing the mattress’ top upholstery layer without replacing the bed’s Pocketed Coil® springs, saving them from having to invest in a new fleet of models while the beds’ constructions are still in their prime. Hotels are able to easily and inexpensively upgrade beds to newer, plusher models, as well as customize comfort levels based on guest preferences, by simply replacing the comfort layer.

The new Recharge Beautyrest® beds come paired with an EnduroTECH™ foundation for enhanced strength and durability. The excellent support of the foundation’s natural material construction ­– designed to withstand years of intense use and environmentally friendly –ensures long-lasting performance.

The recharged models marry Simmons’ legendary Pocketed Coil® springs, temperature management-designed foams, gel-infused foam and AirCool® Design, helping hotel guests to sleep cool and comfortable. These elements combine to provide conforming back support and to enhance airflow and dissipate heat to help with temperature management for restful, undisturbed sleep. The line will also be pre-treated with the high-performance stain protection Nano-Tex® thanks to an exclusive agreement between Simmons and the product’s exclusive distributor Applied Textiles. A leader in the hospitality bedding category, Simmons Beautyrest® is preferred by 17 of the world’s top 20 hotel companies.
