Top Mattress Companies
Simmons Company is a Delaware corporation with executives in Atlanta, Georgia. Simmons is the second largest mattress manufacturer in the U.S.
Approximately 90% of Simmon's sales are in the U.S. 10% are in Canada.

Update: In January, 2010 Simmons emerged from bankruptcy court under the ownership of National Bedding Company(the owner of Serta). Simmons continues to run as a separate business unit from Serta but the combined sales of boths companies catapults them into the #1 spot in mattress sales world wide.
Competition is another challenge for Simmons. There are 500 mattress manufacturers in the U.S. all of which seek to take some of Simmons' massive market share. The most notable competitive risk is from 3 or 4 of the largest manufacturers.
Simmons owns or leases manufacturing facilities in several locations:
Salt Lake City, UT
San Leandro, CA
Shawnee Mission, KS
Delta, British Columbia
Trujillo Alto, Puerto Rico
