TEMPUR Canada is proud to call the Forest City home to its national
operations. Employing over 70 workers from London and area, TEMPUR Canada is
excited to be part of the strong growth that the community is experiencing,
and looks forward to years of success in both local and national markets.
Initially developed at NASA's Ames Research Center in the early 1970's,
the original material was designed to relieve the pressure experienced by
astronauts during lift-off. The TEMPUR(R) formula was then utilized to produce
a hospital mattress to aid in the prevention and healing of pressure sores.
The dramatic improvement in pressure relief, comfort and sleep quality
experienced by individuals in hospitals and patient homes lead to the
distribution of Tempur-Pedic products into the retail market. Today, TEMPUR is
found in millions of bedrooms and hospital rooms worldwide.
The Tempur-Pedic product line is the fastest growing specialty bedding
line in the world and is distributed in over 70 countries. TEMPUR Canada began
marketing the product line in September 1996, and is ranked by Tempur-Pedic
International Inc. as one of the top distributors worldwide. In December 2003,
Tempur-Pedic International Inc. was listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
