Sweet Dreams

After sleeping in our 5er since October on many trips, we determined the OEM mattress was not cutting it. So today on a rainy Saturday that all changed. This morning we drove back into Tyler and as soon as we finished lunch with our kids and grands, Daughter and I set out on a search for better night’s rest.  At the second stop we found the perfect combination of queen size, comfort and price – Rufino Plush by Corsicana Bedding.   It’s made in America, actually a local Texas company, and has a 10 year warranty.  In 1974, they moved into a 24,000 square foot facility in Corsicana. And as the economy changed, they expanded their services to include production for retail furniture and bedding stores. By the end of 1978, the demand for their mattresses and box springs was booming. So they changed their name to Corsicana Bedding, Inc. to reflect the growth and focus in this amazing industry.  They continued to grow through the mid 1980’s. In 1987, they expanded the sales area from a 150-mile radius to a multi-state region that included Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
The Texas manufacturing plant spans over 144,000 square foot and the state of the art facility is capable of producing 4,000 pieces per day on two 10-hour shifts and houses computerized machinery, conveyors and a bar code tracking system.
Recognizing the significance transportation plays in limiting or shaping the avenues of growth, they began developing their own trucking operation and now own their own fleet of trucks and trailers to serve all customers.
In 1996 they opened a plant in Shelbyville, TN. After two years of rapid growth, they moved into a 96,000 sq. ft. facility. This facility also has state of the art equipment and a fleet of trucks to deliver product to customers. This plant is capable of producing 4,000 pieces per day on two shifts and services Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Missouri. they’ve recently expanded the plant to 140,000 sq. ft.     Sounds like an American success story!

Then came the best part, two healthy grown grandsons who helped get it back to the Park, remove the old one and install the new one.  Then we loaded the OEM onto the bed of our F250 and took it straight to Goodwill. Now comes the long anticipated restful night’s sleep.  Love having big Grandsons who are sweet and considerate!
