Therapedic Adds Texas Licensee

 

August 28, 2009 - Therapedic International announced that it has signed Winco, Inc. as its new Texas licensee. Winco, the company’s licensee in Haleyville, Alabama, has agreed to expand its Therapedic operation by opening a new facility in Carrollton, Texas. This facility was previously operated by the former Spring Air Company. Winco is owned and operated by Carroll Moran, who, also, owns Corsicana Bedding.

 

The factory will service all of Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Missouri for Therapedic.

 

“We are especially pleased to have Winco expand its Therapedic operation,” said Gerry Borreggine, president and CEO of Therapedic International. “It’s a strong endorsement of our program, and an affirmation of its adaptability by independent entrepreneurs, either small or larger operations, such as Winco,” he said.

 

“What Therapedic is doing fits our plan,” said Carroll Moran, owner of Winco. Winco has also acquired the Spring Air license for Texas, according to Moran.

 

“We planned to put a Therapedic plant in Texas, and then, Spring Air and this plant became available,” said Moran. The factory will operate as a dual-license, according to Moran. Therapedic has been without a licensee in Texas for two years. The new factory is currently in operation and has begun Therapedic shipping product, said Doug Guffey, president of Winco.

 

“This is a great opportunity to bring back a brand name, a product, and a value that has been sorely missed in this territory,” said Guffey. “We intend to run this business on volume,” he added.

 

This latest addition gives Therapedic thirteen factories in the U.S. The company also operates a large network of international licensees, according to Borreggine.
