Recticel Bedding is Europe’s second largest supplier in this industry and owns a unique portfolio of strong national brands. These are supported by innovative ingredient brands such as GELTEX® inside. We also produce sleep systems which are commercialised under the customer’s name (private labels). 
 

Our passion for comfort

Consumer research across our most important markets shows consistently that the top-ranking purchasing criteria in terms of functional aspects of comfort are body support, pressure distribution and climate comfort, i.e. breathability and evacuation of moisture.Other aspects have become almost industry standard in the mid- to premium segment of the market, namely product durability and anti-allergic and anti-bacterial treatment of the mattress cover and core.

Given the limited possibilities in this segment for product testing before purchase, the challenge is to help the consumer understand and trust that a given product offers the desired benefits. An inspiring end-consumer communication programme promising proven and tested benefits via trusted brands can help to orient the customer in an otherwise confusing market offering.

If this communication occurs not only at the point of sale, but also ‘above the line’ on TV, online, and in out-of-home advertising, print media etc., it will help retailers and suppliers to ‘pre-sell’ the product. By combining our expertise in materials and our strong branding strategy, we aim to respond to and benefit optimally from these structural market drivers.

 

Our Bedding financials

In 2016, Bedding benefited from improved product and customer mixes and from strong growth in box spring sales, although overall performance was weaker in the last quarter.
