Our Story

It all began in 1919 in a small warehouse in Chicago.

As demand for our quality products exceeded our manufacturing capacity, we relocated in 1947 to a much larger facility in Rock Island, IL.  Later on, we established another factory in Minneapolis, MN to help distribute our products to a broader geographic area.

Today we are known as The Bedding Group, a fourth-generation family owned and operated company, and we remain the Midwest’s premiere mattress manufacturer.  Throughout it all, our dedication, commitment and passion to achieve our mission hasn’t changed for nearly a century:

We craft the highest quality mattresses with the perfect balance of comfort, support & value.

Quality products start with quality people.  We are extremely proud to share with you that our team is made up of dedicated people who have found a home here at our company and mattresses now run through their veins.  Between our Product Development, Management and Production Teams we have more than 300 years of experience!

At the Bedding Group, we continuously  strive to produce innovative mattresses of the highest quality.  It begins by utilizing components made in the U.S.A. that offer the latest in technology, are industry certified and meet our strict standards.  We assemble these components using time-tested methods, resulting in products of superior comfort, support and longevity.

We’re Proud To Use Eco-Friendly Materials

Using a renewable resource while reducing energy use and the dependency on petroleum, our foams are made with Harvest®.  What is Harvest®?  It’s nice that you should ask.  It is a line of foam that utilizes a blend of natural oil (such as Soy) polyols and conventional polyols.  It sure is comforting to know you’re sleeping on a mattress that not only performs well but also contributes to the farming economy and helps the environment.

    The use of natural oil polyols reduces our dependence on petrochemicals and lowers greenhouse-gas emissions.
