I Care Sleep Committed to Specialty Sleep Association


November 12, 2008 - The non-profit Specialty Sleep Association (SSA) today announced that I Care Sleep, LLC, the manufacturer of two state-of-the-art product lines, has joined the organization which helps educate consumers, retailers and manufacturers on “The Future of Sleep.” "As the specialty sleep category continues to grow, we are thrilled to welcome I Care Sleep to the Specialty Sleep Association,” said Dale Read, president, SSA. “This demonstrates the company’s commitment to the innovation and technology that represents ‘The Future of Sleep.’ I Care Sleep Products, a separate business unit of Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company, produces the Earthcare and i-care lines. Earthcare uses natural latex and Preserve™ by Hickory Springs, a bio-based foam, as core components. The i-care brand utilizes memory foam.


“The technology we can use to create sleep products that really help people is exciting,” said Jim Wall, general manager, I Care Sleep, LLC. “Our goal to bring the best of these products to market and to keep looking ahead, which is also the reason I Care is a member of the Specialty Sleep Association.” Over the past several months, the SSA has succeeded in attracting other new members to its group, such as Sealy, 1-800-Mattress, TempurPedic, Leggett & Platt, Englander, Natura World, Hollandia, Lilly Management, Comfortaire, and Latex International, among others.
