New Albany, Ohio, [May 29, 2013] – Commercial Vehicle Group, Inc., (Nasdaq: CVGI) a leading supplier of fully-integrated system solutions for the global commercial vehicle market, is pleased to announce that its Bostrom® Seating brand is introducing a new line of truck mattresses that feature industry leading Serta® technology. Serta is the number one mattress manufacturer in the United States.
Following its successful launch of the Wide Ride II+Serta suspension seat, Bostrom has partnered with Serta again to develop a new premium product offering to the North American truck market.
Two models of the new Bostrom+Serta truck mattress will be available, each in various sizes to accommodate the common mattress sizes used in Class 8 trucks with sleeper cabs. Each mattress has a replaceable zip-on cover and integrated carry straps to make it easy for drivers to move between vehicles.
The 7-series mattress features a top layer of Serta’s Cool Action™ gel memory foam that provides all the benefits of memory foam technology and helps regulate body temperature. This results in a more comfortable sleeping experience through all seasons. The mattress is approximately seven inches thick and provides premium level comfort for truck drivers.
The 4-series mattress features a top layer of advanced memory foam to ensure improved comfort by relieving pressure points and improving weight distribution over the mattress. The mattress is four inches thick and can be rolled up and carried using integrated carry straps.
Patrick Miller, vice president and general manager of Industrial Market and Parts for Commercial Vehicle Group stated, “We’re excited about the opportunity to help drivers find the same quality sleep experience on the road that they have at home. The Bostrom and Serta teams have created a unique product line as a result of our joint efforts. Our partnership combines the strengths of two premier companies known for comfort and quality in our respective segments. Launching a line of mattresses into the North American truck industry helps Bostrom Seating expand its focus on driver well-being. We will offer our range of mattresses through an extensive dealer network through the United States, Canada and Latin America.”
Bostrom+Serta Mattresses will be available for dealers to order from June 17, 2013.
