History of Sealy
Sealy’s journey began in 1881 in the town of Sealy, Texas, when Daniel Haynes, a cotton gin builder, filled a request for a cotton-filled mattress. And then another. And then another. His business grew rapidly, leading to more innovations and several patents, including a machine to compress cotton. Haynes sold his patents to a Texas Company that retained the Sealy handle and by 1920, Sealy had 23 licensed plants.
Sealy’s innovations didn’t stop. More milestones came, including the first Sealy Posturepedic mattress and being the first mattress company to display and advertise a king-sized bed. Sealy created an Orthopedic Advisory Board, and reinvented the innerspring coil, and the box spring. Patenting a variety of groundbreaking technologies, the list continues to grow.
In 1983, Sealy purchased the Stearns & Foster Company, whose mattresses redefined luxury and showed craftsmanship and intricate detail, making it a perfect addition to the Sealy family.
Today the company owns and operates 25 plants in the U.S. For three decades, Sealy has been number one in market share and unwavering in its vision to help the world sleep better. Through design, manufacturing and leadership, Sealy is poised to continue its legacy for years to come.
