Chad entered the bedding industry when he was 20 years old. His early duties were ironing on labels, cutting materials, and running a quilter. As the company continued to grow, his responsibilities did as well. Chad took over the warehouse and did all of the purchasing. At 26, he was promoted to plant manager. Two years later, he was sent to Tennessee to make an underperforming plant, profitable. Returning to Texas from his one-year stay, Chad's charismatic and natural leading personality landed him a spot as the Vice President. The company went through tremendous growth under his leadership. From 2008 to 2017 Chad earned his title as President of the largest piece producing mattress company in the United States.
In 2019, Chad and Brian returned to their roots of delivering quality and value for the bedding industry. Using the skills they learned in their earlier years, the two of them opened their own mattress factory. Their passion and knowledge of the industry make them one heck of a team.
