Bedding

Bedding Couple Sleeping

When thoughts start to turn to rest, your mattress and pillow are your choice destination. There is no better feeling than stretching out on a mattress with the perfect combination of firmness and cushioning. We know that same feeling, so we work hard to ensure that every mattress foam bedding product we produce delivers that same comfortable feeling - nap after nap, and night after night.

In the bedding and furniture business, OEM’s, DTC’s and fabricators are interested in continuous advancement. Listening to our customers’ objectives and offering problem-solving solutions are what differentiates Elite Comfort Solutions from other core foam manufacturers. We are focused on providing you with your vision, your design, and your next big success!

Automotive, Marine & Aerospace

Leather Car Seat

When you sit behind the wheel of your brand new car you feel it - the firm yet subtle softness of your driver’s seat. It might even be the reason you bought the car in the first place! Now here’s the important thing – that the same luxurious feeling still exists even after 100K miles have been logged. Great seating is important, not only for now, but for the resale of the vehicle. That is why we pay extra attention to the foams we develop for the automotive market. We want the initial great feeling to last a lifetime.

Marine applications are equally important. Recreational watercraft carries a long life span - a boat can still be considered marketable even after 25 to 30 years. The value of the boat is based on its appearance and condition, so boat seating is very important. We bring technology and design into consideration when we create foams for this special market. Not only do our foams have to stand the test of time and endurance of use, but they must hold up to the environment as well. Freezing cold temperatures, burning hot sun, humidity, and of course people are factors we consider when developing the right foam formulations for marine applications.
