ISPA Welcomed Over 80 New Members in 2013.
The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) welcomed over 80 new members in 2013. ISPA membership continues to see healthy growth rates across all industry categories, including start-up companies, veteran mattress producers, components suppliers, and manufacturers of accessories.
“ISPA helps its members address issues that a single company cannot manage alone,” said ISPA President, Ryan Trainer. “Resources like ISPA Insider, ISPA Advocacy Alerts, and the ISPA Wage Survey are valuable tools that members can use to tackle day-to-day business issues and for long-term planning.”
For nearly 100 years, ISPA programs and initiatives have supported and protected the mattress industry’s growth, profitability and stature. For example, as a result of advocacy efforts in 2013, ISPA helped the industry avoid costly new legal requirements, and instead negotiated much more practical industry lead efforts. As a result, ISPA recently established a non-profit entity called the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) to manage mattress recycling programs in California, Connecticut and Rhode Island. ISPA anticipates the MRC will be an essential factor in future mattress recycling activities in other parts of the country.
“2013 brought significant shifts in policy and business practices throughout the sleep products industry,” noted Mary Helen Uusimaki, ISPA’s VP of Membership and Communications. “As the voice of the mattress industry, ISPA is at the forefront of advocating for industry policies and educating our members about how government policies can affect their businesses.”
