Aydın Tekstil: ISPA fair<br />

performed positive for<br />

our exports<br />

Berhan Kaya, Marketing Manager of Aydın Tekstil, said that the<br />

ISPA Expo fair met their expectations.<br />

Berhan Kaya, who used<br />

the expression “we want<br />

to follow the trends and<br />

technological developments on<br />

the spot” while explaining their<br />

expectations from the ISPA exhibition<br />

in his interview before the<br />

exhibition, stated that the exhibition<br />

functioned as a milestone<br />

on the way to short, medium and<br />

long term targets. Stating that<br />

they took part in a very important<br />

fair for the American mattress<br />

industry as well as for the companies<br />

and countries that want<br />

to export to this continent and<br />

make investments here, Kaya<br />

said that Turkish companies were<br />

the most prominent companies in<br />

the fair and Aydın Tekstil was the<br />

leader among these companies.<br />

Stating that the fair was productive<br />

for them and that their<br />

expectations were met, Kaya<br />

gave the following statements;<br />

12 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

“ISPA fair is an organisation that<br />

appeals to the entire American<br />

continent and even hosts many<br />

visitors from outside the continent.<br />

This year, as in previous<br />

years, it was a fair with a very<br />

high efficiency scale and the fair<br />

maintained its stability. There<br />

were positive developments that<br />

will positively affect our export<br />

figures both in the fair area and<br />

in the meetings we held after<br />

the fair. These developments will<br />

enable us to increase our exports<br />

and investments to America.<br />

With the studies we will carry<br />

out in the light of these developments,<br />

we aim to highlight the<br />

Aydın Textile brand with quality<br />

and innovative products in the<br />

American and world market in<br />

the medium and long term.”<br />

BekaertDeslee attracts great<br />

interest from the industry for its<br />

CASA collection at ISPA <strong>2024</strong><br />

WAREGEM – BekaertDeslee the world’s leading specialist in<br />

mattress textiles and sleep solutions concluded its successful<br />

participation at the International <strong>Sleep</strong> Products Association (ISPA)<br />

EXPO <strong>2024</strong>, held from in Columbus, Ohio, 12-14 March <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

ISPA EXPO <strong>2024</strong> event served<br />

as a platform for BekaertDeslee<br />

to showcase its latest<br />

innovations and sustainable<br />

solutions, garnering significant interest<br />

and acclaim from industry<br />

professionals and attendees.<br />

The highlight of BekaertDeslee’s<br />

showcase was the unveiling of its<br />

latest design collection, CASA,<br />

which received widespread<br />

acclaim for its fusion of style,<br />

functionality, and sustainability.<br />

The CASA collection captivated<br />

visitors with its innovative approach<br />

to the upcoming trends in<br />

interior design, transforming living<br />

spaces, emphasizing self-care,<br />

self-reliance, and self-expression<br />

while integrating environmentally<br />

friendly materials and responsible<br />

manufacturing practices.<br />

“We are thrilled by the positive<br />

response to our CASA collection<br />

at ISPA EXPO <strong>2024</strong>,” said Rafael<br />

Rodriguez, President of Bekaert-<br />

Deslee North America. “The<br />

collection represents our commitment<br />

to pushing the boundaries<br />

of design and innovation while<br />

prioritizing sustainability and consumer<br />

well-being.”<br />

In addition to the CASA collection,<br />

BekaertDeslee’s revolutionary<br />

cooling technology, COMBO-<br />

COOL, generated significant<br />

interest among attendees. With<br />

its dual-action cooling mechanism<br />

and over 50% biobased<br />

content, COMBOCOOL offers<br />

long-lasting comfort and sustainability,<br />

setting a new standard in<br />

sleep technology.<br />

“Our COMBOCOOL technology<br />

received tremendous attention<br />

at ISPA EXPO <strong>2024</strong>,” noted<br />

Rodriguez. “Its ability to provide<br />

continuous and active cooling,<br />

16 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

coupled with its sustainable<br />

formulation, resonated strongly<br />

with attendees seeking innovative<br />

solutions for a better sleep<br />

experience.”<br />

Furthermore, the success of<br />

the stretch woven construction<br />

was notable during the fair. This<br />

innovative construction, crucial to<br />

our strategy of advancing jacquard<br />

techniques and rescuing<br />

the woven heritage, allows for<br />

enhanced stretching, ensuring<br />

intricate detailing and exceptional<br />

comfort for a restful sleep experience.<br />

Visitors were impressed by<br />

the combination of sophistication<br />

and convenience offered by the<br />

stretch woven fabrics, which<br />

boast luxurious appearances and<br />

soft textures while maintaining<br />

wrinkle-free and easy-to-handle<br />

properties.<br />

BekaertDeslee’s commitment<br />

to sustainability was a recurring<br />

theme throughout the fair, with<br />

its sustainability journey drawing<br />

considerable interest from visitors.<br />

The company’s dedication<br />

to offering products that meet<br />

current needs while taking care<br />

of the environment for future generations<br />

underscores its position<br />

as a leader in responsible manufacturing<br />

practices.<br />

“We are proud to have shared<br />

our vision for the future of sleep<br />

and sustainability at ISPA EXPO<br />

<strong>2024</strong>,” said Rhiannon Burch<br />

Hallam, Senior Vice President of<br />

Sales North America at Bekaert-<br />

Deslee. “The event provided an<br />

invaluable opportunity to engage<br />

with industry professionals<br />

and demonstrate our ongoing<br />

commitment to innovation and<br />

sustainability.”<br />

of the main actors of ISPA<br />

Expo <strong>2024</strong><br />

Feridun Tosun, Boyçelik Export Officer, said that they had been<br />

very productive at ISPA Expo and they were one of the most<br />

prominent companies of the fair.<br />

Feridun Tosun stated that<br />

they are one of the most<br />

well-known brands in the<br />

USA in the field of mattress<br />

springs thanks to the commercial<br />

relations they have established<br />

in the ISPA Expo fairs held so far<br />

and that they want to position<br />

themselves at the top by continuing<br />

this rise and emphasized that<br />

Boyçelik brand value was one of<br />

the most prominent values at the<br />

fair. Feridun Tosun stated that<br />

it is extremely proud for them to<br />

have such a great impact at the<br />

world’s largest bedding materials<br />

fair and emphasized their determination<br />

and stability to maintain<br />

this success.<br />

Feridun Tosun, Boyçelik Export<br />

Officer, made the following statements<br />

in his statement; “In the<br />

20 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

interview we had with you before<br />

the fair, we had mentioned how<br />

important the American market is<br />

in the light of statistical data. As<br />

Boyçelik, we have been one of<br />

the active players of this market<br />

for a long time. For a country like<br />

us, which faces west in terms<br />

of trade, the American market<br />

harbors great opportunities. As<br />

Boyçelik, we have been participating<br />

in ISPA Expo fairs for<br />

many years and exhibiting our<br />

brand value in these fairs in order<br />

to utilize these opportunities. In<br />

this year’s exhibition, we showed<br />

our colleagues operating in the<br />

American market that we, as<br />

Boyçelik, are one of the biggest<br />

actors of the Turkish mattress<br />

sub-industry. We knew that we<br />

would get a lot of efficiency from<br />

the exhibition and we did our<br />

work in this direction and we<br />

were not wrong in our predictions.<br />

We took care to host our<br />

visitors in the best way and we<br />

demonstrated the quality of our<br />

products in this exhibition as<br />

before. In the medium and long<br />

term, we aim to be the most<br />

important player in the American<br />

market in our field and we continue<br />

our efforts towards this goal.”<br />

Boyteks for good mornings<br />

We talked about the International <strong>Sleep</strong> Products Association<br />

(ISPA) Fair and the future expectations from the American Market<br />

with Mr. Harun Gürkan YİĞİT, Regional Sales Manager of Boyteks<br />

Tekstil, which continues to produce innovative, technological,<br />

natural and environmentally friendly products with the motto<br />

“good mornings in more than 100 countries”.<br />

Noting that they are excitedly<br />

waiting for the revival<br />

of the United States’ (US)<br />

mattress ticking market, which<br />

has shrunk in parallel with the<br />

global mattress ticking industry<br />

in 2023, in line with their goal of<br />

increasing the awareness of the<br />

Boyteks brand in the American<br />

market, where they currently<br />

operate through wholesalers, Mr.<br />

Harun Gürkan YİĞİT said: “We<br />

think that the ISPA Fair created a<br />

sparking effect in achieving this<br />

goal.”<br />

Mr. Harun Gürkan YİĞİT continued<br />

his words as follows: “We<br />

hosted many visitors from North<br />

and South American countries<br />

with whom we had very fruitful<br />

commercial negotiations and<br />

discussed productive projects.<br />

We had a very positive fair for<br />

both us and our visitors.” Stating<br />

that the US market is the world’s<br />

largest mattress ticking market<br />

and one of the primary markets<br />

targeted by Boyteks, Mr. Yiğit<br />

said: “In order to increase our<br />

brand value in this market, we<br />

took our place in the ISPA Fair<br />

as an exihibitor and we are also<br />

attending the Las Vegas Market<br />

Show as a visitor. The US market<br />

is one of the three largest mattress<br />

ticking markets in the world<br />

in terms of quantity and volume<br />

and has the capacity to inspire,<br />

guide and set trends for mattress<br />

ticking manufacturers in all other<br />

countries. Significant expenditures<br />

are made and studies are<br />

carried out within the scope of<br />

research and development (R&D)<br />

and product development (P&D)<br />

activities in the mattress ticking<br />

market of US, which is one of<br />

the leading countries in the world<br />

that licenses bedding brands. In<br />

this regard, as a manufacturer<br />

that has been serving the US<br />

market for 20 years, we attach<br />

importance to the fact that the<br />

mattress ticking we develop are<br />

visionary and support trend-setting<br />

mattress ticking manufacturers.<br />

In addition to our P&D<br />

activities, we attach importance<br />

to the on-site observations and<br />

determinations we make within<br />

the scope of our marketing<br />

activities, both as exhibitors and<br />

visitors at US fairs.”<br />

Mr. Harun Gürkan Yiğit said: “At<br />

ISPA EXPO <strong>2024</strong>, our innovative<br />

products were exhibited along<br />

with natural products that are<br />

generally trending in the market.<br />

These two concepts have now<br />

cool-feeling products have been<br />

touted as innovative products for<br />

years. Therefore, we plan to bring<br />

innovations that can accompany<br />

these products and be used in<br />

the same product. In this context,<br />

we introduced our naturally<br />

innovative and environmentally<br />

friendly products such as Synergy,<br />

Slimfit, OzoneTherapy, Hydrogel,<br />

Return, Rose, developed by<br />

our R&D department, as well as<br />

Interzum award-winning Nettle<br />

and Biogreen to our customers<br />

and visitors at ISPA.”<br />

Nettle<br />

Considering that nettle is a<br />

natural thermoregulator thanks<br />

to its unique structure and thus<br />

provides a more comfortable<br />

sleeping environment, the Nettle<br />

mattress ticking we produce to<br />

provide a more comfortable sleep<br />

has proven itself by receiving<br />

the international “Hight Product<br />

Quality” achievement award.<br />

BioGreen<br />

As Boyteks, we developed the<br />

BioGreen mattress ticking concept<br />

using bio-based raw materials<br />

in order to leave a livable<br />

world to future generations.<br />

BioGreen is an innovative mattress<br />

ticking concept consisting<br />

of natural products with herbal<br />

ingredients.<br />

Hydrogel<br />

We provide a better quality sleep<br />

environment with the cooling<br />

effect of Hydrogel, which we<br />

developed based on gel-containing<br />

products, considering that in<br />

addition to its cooling effect, it<br />

contributes to the body’s moisture<br />

balance.<br />

OzoneTherapy<br />

We developed OzoneTherapy<br />

mattress ticking to reduce the<br />

negative effects of free radicals<br />

and oxidative stress during<br />

sleep. The crystallized minerals<br />

body temperature and release<br />

active ions into the medium.<br />

These ions reduce the effect of<br />

free radicals and help reduce<br />

oxidative stress, just like in the<br />

ozone therapy method.<br />

ReTURN<br />

As part of our approach to being<br />

more environmentally-friendly, we<br />

developed the ReTURN mattress<br />

ticking, which can be degraded<br />

faster in nature. ReTURN mattress<br />

ticking, which we developed<br />

by adding special enzymes<br />

to its structure and using polyester<br />

threads, contributes to<br />

reducing environmental pollution<br />

as it dissolves 90 times faster<br />

than normal ticking.<br />

Rose<br />

We developed the Rose mattress<br />

ticking, which contains rose<br />

protein, to help provide a health-<br />

ier skin. Rose mattress ticking<br />

revitalizes the skin and provides a<br />

healthier sleeping environment.<br />

Slimfit<br />

Irregular and excessive fat accumulated<br />

under the skin due<br />

to the increase in fat tissue in<br />

the body usually leads to skin<br />

surface disorders in the leg,<br />

abdomen and hip areas and, as a<br />

result, an unhealthy appearance.<br />

That’s why we developed Slimfit<br />

mattress ticking to prevent such<br />

skin disorders and give the skin a<br />

firmer and more beautiful appearance.<br />

Synergy<br />

We spend 70 percent of our daily<br />

energy to maintain the basal<br />

metabolic rate, which is the resting<br />

metabolic rate of our body.<br />

Contrary to popular belief, sleep<br />

is not just a process in which the<br />

body rests and is passive. The<br />

body continues to lose energy<br />

during rest and sleep. That’s why<br />

we developed Synergy mattress<br />

ticking to help us regain our lost<br />

energy throughout the day and<br />

prevent energy loss during sleep.<br />

IKMIB Chairman Adil Pelister:<br />

“The Türkiye Green Industry Project<br />

will make a great contribution to the<br />

green transformation of our SMEs”<br />

Pelister noted: “I wish that<br />

the “Türkiye Green Industry<br />

Project”, which is implemented<br />

under the coordination<br />

of the Ministry of Industry and<br />

<strong>Tech</strong>nology and with the financial<br />

support of the World Bank<br />

through KOSGEB and TÜBİTAK,<br />

will be auspicious for our country,<br />

our business world and our<br />

sector. Within the scope of our<br />

country’s 2053 Net Zero Emission<br />

vision and our chemical sector’s<br />

2030 vision of sustainability, I<br />

find this project, which supports<br />

the activities to prepare for green<br />

transformation, very important<br />

and I wish our sector, which is<br />

mostly composed of SMEs, will<br />

be able to benefit from this valuable<br />

support.<br />

Minister Çavuşoğlu announced<br />

that they will support the efficient<br />

green transformation of industrialists,<br />

entrepreneurs and SMEs<br />

with the “Turkey Green Industry<br />

Project” and that the project,<br />

which has a budget of 450 million<br />

dollars, will be carried out under<br />

the coordination of the Ministry<br />

of Industry and <strong>Tech</strong>nology in<br />

cooperation with KOSGEB and<br />

TÜBİTAK.<br />

With the KOSGEB Green Industry<br />

Support Program that has<br />

entered into force, SMEs will be<br />

supported up to 14 million Turkish<br />

Liras for the installation of solar<br />

energy systems within their own<br />

structure; green transformation<br />

projects for energy, water and<br />

raw material efficiency, sustainable<br />

and climate-resilient waste<br />

recycling will be supported up to<br />

4 million Turkish Liras; companies<br />

engaged in R&D and innovation<br />

activities for green production,<br />

higher energy and resource<br />

efficiency and private sector-led<br />

collaborations will be provided<br />

with TÜBİTAK support.<br />

We see that the “Green Growth<br />

<strong>Tech</strong>nology Roadmap” focuses on<br />

6 sectors. Among the 6 sectors, it<br />

is pleasing to see that our chemicals,<br />

plastics and fertilizer sectors<br />

are prioritized and will be able to<br />

apply to the project. Since the<br />

chemicals sector is a strategic<br />

sector that provides input to 27<br />

other sectors, its prioritization and<br />

taking action for green transformation<br />

with these supports will<br />

positively affect all sectors.<br />

“Now is the time to take action<br />

for our future, for sustainable<br />

growth and a strong Türkiye”<br />

As IKMIB, we have identified sustainability<br />

as a focal point in line<br />

with our 2030 vision. In this context,<br />

we work on green transformation,<br />

circular economy and digital<br />

transformation. Transformation<br />

projects require high costs and<br />

capital. In this sense, it is of great<br />

importance that our companies<br />

are supported by our government.<br />

Now is the time to take action for<br />

our future, for sustainable growth<br />

and a strong Türkiye.<br />

We recommend that our companies<br />

advanced product portfolio.”<br />

Pointing out that there is a revival in<br />

the textile and related industries in<br />

the European and American markets,<br />

Durak stated that these regions will<br />

need high quality materials without<br />

supply problems in the coming period.<br />

He explained that they are in the<br />

process of reorganisation for deeper<br />

and more comprehensive access to<br />

the market in North America, especially<br />

in Eastern and Central Europe,<br />

and continued his words as follows;<br />

“We have entered a period in which<br />

it is understood how important<br />

the supply<br />

chain between<br />

global and local<br />

markets<br />

is. For this<br />

reason,<br />

manufacturers<br />

want to<br />

obtain the<br />

best material<br />

under the best<br />

supply conditions.<br />

In this new<br />

process based on trust, as<br />

Durak Tekstil, we position ourselves<br />

ourselves in the market with<br />

sustainable threads and special<br />

threads for technical applications.<br />

We understand and share the manufacturers’<br />

vision for tomorrow.”<br />

In <strong>2024</strong>, major part of the<br />

increase in turnover will come<br />

from exports<br />

Yiğit Durak underlined that Durak<br />

Tekstil’s growth in both local and<br />

global markets in recent years has<br />

been achieved by differentiating itself<br />

in technology, art and sustainability<br />

as well as organising production and<br />

sales processes within this framework.<br />

Indicating that they achieved<br />

continuous growth even during pandemic<br />

and crisis periods, he noted<br />

that this is linked to both market<br />

diversification and the expansion of<br />

the product range.<br />

He pointed out that they aim to<br />

increase their turnover by 30% in<br />

dollar terms in <strong>2024</strong>, remarking<br />

that their exports to 77 countries<br />

will constitute the main part of this<br />

increase. Saying; “Our strategy to<br />

grow in foreign markets has become<br />

stronger and more comprehensive<br />

with the contribution of<br />

the Turquality support we<br />

have received,” Durak<br />

added that the effect<br />

of exports on the<br />

increase in turnover<br />

this year will be 80-<br />

90%.<br />

The Comprehensive Guide To<br />

Mattress Packing For Storage<br />

And Transportation<br />

Packing a mattress for<br />

storage or transportation<br />

may initially seem challenging,<br />

but with the right tools<br />

and techniques, it’s a manageable<br />

task. In this all-inclusive<br />

guide, we’ll take you through the<br />

process, from selecting suitable<br />

packing materials to folding your<br />

mattress properly, whether you<br />

use a mattress folding machine,<br />

a mattress roll packing machine,<br />

or do it by hand. By following our<br />

instructions, you’ll become a pro<br />

at packing your mattress in no<br />

time!<br />

Introduction To Mattress<br />

Packing<br />

Packing a mattress in a box is<br />

the most practical way to safeguard<br />

it during storage or transport.<br />

This method shields the<br />

36 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

News<br />

mattress from potential damage<br />

due to dirt, dust, and external<br />

elements. You can pack various<br />

mattress types like foam, spring,<br />

latex, or hybrid mattresses, with<br />

the standard mattress box typically<br />

measuring around 80 inches<br />

in length, 80 inches in width, and<br />

10 inches in depth.<br />

To ensure the mattress’s safety<br />

and security during transit,<br />

you’ll need specific materials,<br />

including cardboard boxes to<br />

prevent dents and scratches,<br />

bubble wrap or plastic covers for<br />

added cushioning, packing tape<br />

for sealing, and labels for easy<br />

identification.<br />

Once you have all your materials<br />

ready, correctly folding your<br />

mattress is crucial. Begin with<br />

one end of the mattress facing<br />

up and grab both ends of the<br />

folded side. Bring them together<br />

horizontally to form an ‘X’ shape<br />

and fold them across each other<br />

until they are entirely flat. Secure<br />

them with tape before placing<br />

them in the box. Following these<br />

steps ensures your mattress is<br />

well-packed and protected for its<br />

journey.<br />

How To Fold A Mattress For<br />

Proper Packing<br />

Properly folding a mattress is<br />

essential to ensure safe storage<br />

and transportation. Choose an<br />

area with sufficient space, a flat,<br />

clean, and dry surface before<br />

starting the process. Begin by<br />

folding the mattress in thirds,<br />

taking care not to damage the<br />

springs or foam layers.<br />

Next, fold the mattress in half<br />

lengthwise, reducing its size to a<br />

quarter of the original. Tuck the<br />

top edge into the bottom crease<br />

and secure the bundle with<br />

ropes or straps to keep it tightly<br />

bound. Finally, wrap the package<br />

in plastic wrap or bubble wrap<br />

for added protection against<br />

dust and moisture. Label the box<br />

as “Fragile” for careful handling<br />

during transit. These steps guarantee<br />

your mattress will be adequately<br />

packed for safe storage<br />

or transportation.<br />

Tools Needed For Proper<br />

Mattress Packing<br />

The right tools make all the difference<br />

when packing a mattress.<br />

Traditional materials like cardboard<br />

boxes and bubble wrap<br />

are useful, but specialized tools<br />

38 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

News<br />

can save time and enhance protection.<br />

A mattress folding machine<br />

efficiently folds mattresses<br />

into compact, transportable boxes,<br />

while a mattress roll packing<br />

machine creates tight mattress<br />

rolls that save space and offer<br />

cushioning. For added protection,<br />

use foam sheets or pads<br />

to provide extra cushioning and<br />

insulation against dust mites and<br />

allergens. Additionally, straps,<br />

rope, and tape are essential for<br />

securing your rolled or folded<br />

mattress in the box for added<br />

security. Having these resources<br />

at your disposal guarantees the<br />

safe packing and transport of<br />

your mattress.<br />

Instructions For Using A<br />

Mattress Folding Machine<br />

Using a mattress folding machine<br />

simplifies the process and<br />

ensures your mattress is properly<br />

folded for storage or transport.<br />

Here are some key considerations<br />

and instructions:<br />

1. **Choose the Right Machine:**<br />

Check the machine’s specifications,<br />

including adjustable<br />

settings for speed, pressure, and<br />

cutting blade to accommodate<br />

different mattress thicknesses.<br />

Ensure it’s compatible with your<br />

power source, either electricity or<br />

compressed air.<br />

2. **Preparing the Mattress:**<br />

Place the mattress on a clean,<br />

debris-free surface within the<br />

machine’s conveyor area. Adjust<br />

machine settings according to<br />

40 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

News<br />

your mattress’s size and thickness.<br />

3. **Automatic Bagging and Sealing:**<br />

Cover the mattress with a<br />

layer of film and seal all four sides<br />

to prevent air leakage. Compress<br />

the mattress into a flat-pack.,<br />

4. **Compress and Fold:** Fold<br />

the flat-packed mattress to<br />

reduce its size for easier storage<br />

and transport.<br />

5. **Completing Operations:**<br />

Press the start button and allow<br />

the machine to complete its cycle<br />

(typically about 30 seconds). Turn<br />

off the power before removing<br />

your folded mattress.<br />

Following these steps when<br />

using a mattress folding machine<br />

ensures safe and efficient mattress<br />

packing.<br />

Instructions For Using A<br />

Mattress Roll Packing Machine<br />

Using a mattress roll packing<br />

machine is an efficient method<br />

for packing mattresses that are<br />

too large for standard boxes.<br />

Here are instructions for using<br />

this machine:<br />

1. **Preparation:** Two individuals<br />

are required – one to feed<br />

the mattress into the machine<br />

and the other to operate it. Both<br />

should have experience with<br />

the machinery and follow safety<br />

measures.<br />

2. **Position the Mattress:** Start<br />

by placing the mattress facedown<br />

on a flat surface. Feed one<br />

end onto the machine’s feeder<br />

belt and ensure even pressure is<br />

applied to prevent uneven rolling.<br />

3. **Secure the Roll:** Once the<br />

desired layers are rolled, secure<br />

them tightly with packing tape at<br />

both ends to maintain the rolled<br />

shape.<br />

Using a mattress roll packing machine<br />

makes packing larger mattresses<br />

easier and more efficient,<br />

ensuring they remain protected<br />

during storage and transport.<br />

With this comprehensive guide,<br />

you’ll be well-equipped to pack<br />

your mattress safely, whether<br />

you opt for manual folding or use<br />

specialized packing machines.<br />

one of the leading companies in the Turkish mattress components<br />

industry and the main supplier of mattress machinery to the global<br />

mattress industry, stated that they were pleased with the interest<br />

they received at ISPA Expo.<br />

Stating that they already<br />

have solution partner companies<br />

in the USA and Brazil<br />

and that they are no stranger<br />

to the American market, Osman<br />

Güler emphasised that they<br />

are the pioneers of the Turkish<br />

mattress components industry in<br />

terms of expanding to America.<br />

Stating that the ISPA Expo fairs<br />

organized in previous years have<br />

been of great benefit to them in<br />

terms of being effective in the<br />

American market, Güler said that<br />

they have also received efficient<br />

results from the ISPA Expo <strong>2024</strong><br />

fair. Stating that they hosted visitors<br />

from almost every country of<br />

the continent, Osman Güler said;<br />

“As you know, as Elektroteks,<br />

we have been working continuously<br />

developing, improving and<br />

always looking forward for about<br />

35 years. In this process, we<br />

have exported to 140 countries<br />

of the world and we still continue<br />

to do so. Of course, the countries<br />

in the American market are<br />

also among them. At ISPA Expo<br />

<strong>2024</strong>, we encountered intense<br />

interest from visitors from Brazil,<br />

Mexico, Canada, Argentina and<br />

Colombia, especially from the<br />

USA. As I said at the beginning,<br />

this is not a new situation. We<br />

have been serving the American<br />

market for years and the American<br />

mattress industry knows us<br />

closely. In fact, our purpose of<br />

participating in these fairs is not<br />

only to introduce ourselves to the<br />

markets, but also to protect our<br />

brand value and prestige that we<br />

have created so far in all markets<br />

and to build a greater prestige.<br />

But of course, if we evaluate the<br />

overall performance of the fair; it<br />

was a productive and intense fair.<br />

Especially our Turkish companies<br />

came to the forefront in this fair<br />

and as the majority, they created<br />

the impression of a Turkish fair in<br />

the USA.”<br />

Mattregate: We obtained new<br />

opportunities at ISPA Expo <strong>2024</strong><br />

Tayyip Tanrıöven, CEO of Mattregate, stated that they had the<br />

experience of testing the current dynamics in the American<br />

market and the potential of the market at ISPA Expo <strong>2024</strong>.<br />

Stating that they made<br />

preparations for the fair at<br />

least 3 months in advance<br />

together with the sales and<br />

marketing team and the company’s<br />

production engineers,<br />

Tayyip Tanrıöven assessed the<br />

performance of the fair; “The<br />

ISPA fair was very productive for<br />

our company to meet with our<br />

business partners and customers<br />

in America and South America in<br />

<strong>2024</strong>, to meet our potential customers<br />

and to present our latest<br />

products and production capabilities<br />

to our visitors. It also helped<br />

us to determine our 2025 targets<br />

in that region and shed light on<br />

our future targets.” Tanrıöven,<br />

who evaluated that the fair was<br />

directly separated from both the<br />

European and Turkish fairs in<br />

terms of visitor portfolio and potential<br />

as it hosted the customer<br />

population that can make purchases<br />

from both European and<br />

Turkish fairs, said: “As Mattre-<br />

wish that our cooperation in the<br />

region, which is already one of<br />

our main markets, will continue<br />

to increase and contribute to the<br />

exports of both our company and<br />

our country.”<br />

Emphasising that evaluating<br />

customer feedback and the latest<br />

trends in the industry during the<br />

exhibition process will help to further<br />

strengthen product development<br />

and marketing strategies,<br />

Tanrıöven said; “This experience<br />

can provide a solid foundation<br />

for future growth and success<br />

by enabling our company to<br />

maintain its competitive position<br />

and continuously innovate. As<br />

a result, the ISPA exhibition has<br />

contributed greatly to increasing<br />

our company’s influence in the<br />

international arena by enabling<br />

us to both strengthen our existing<br />

business relationships and<br />

discover new opportunities. With<br />

the experience we have gained<br />

for future exhibitions, we will<br />

move forward by further strengthening<br />

Take Center Stage<br />

The slogan for Columbus, Ohio, could just as easily be said for<br />

ISPA EXPO <strong>2024</strong>, which attracted thousands to experience all the<br />

bedding industry has to offer.<br />

Sunny weather and<br />

above-average temperatures<br />

welcomed thousands<br />

of mattress producers, suppliers<br />

and industry leaders from around<br />

the globe to downtown Columbus,<br />

Ohio, March 12-14 for ISPA<br />

EXPO <strong>2024</strong>, the world’s largest<br />

bedding components show.<br />

“For us, the fair was extremely<br />

positive and super exciting,<br />

always busy and full of visits and<br />

important meetings,” said Andrea<br />

Lazzaroni, executive vice president<br />

and chief operating officer<br />

of CT Nassau, based in Mebane,<br />

North Carolina. “We are thrilled to<br />

have attracted all the players in<br />

our industry to our company.”<br />

Silvia Enriquez, co-owner of<br />

based in Commerce, California,<br />

echoed his sentiments: “This<br />

show is helpful to us so we can<br />

see all our international customers.<br />

We can show them everything<br />

we have in one spot.”<br />

The <strong>2024</strong> exhibition boasts the<br />

superlative of being the largest<br />

ISPA EXPO in terms of square<br />

footage (164,300 square feet),<br />

and it attracted 249 exhibitors to<br />

60 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

the Greater Columbus Convention<br />

Center.<br />

Of the attendees, 30% were<br />

from outside the United States.<br />

Kayseri, Turkey-based Boyteks<br />

reported that in one day, the<br />

company had visitors from more<br />

than 50 different countries.<br />

Trends in the industry were easy<br />

to spot. Exhibitors focused on<br />

cost savings, while at the same<br />

time making more eco-friendly<br />

choices.<br />

A number of springs makers<br />

introduced 10-inch coils or coilon-coil<br />

constructions, with an<br />

eye toward reducing the amount<br />

of foam required to create a<br />

mattress. Some introduced<br />

cotton-encased coils for a more<br />

natural composition while others<br />

wrapped springs in recycled<br />

nonwoven fabric.<br />

Adhesives makers, listening to<br />

industry demands for more sustainable<br />

adhesives, touted new<br />

bio-based formulations, which<br />

several producers said were cost<br />

effective, too. Many suppliers<br />

also brought polypropylene adhesives<br />

to make recycling pocketed<br />

coils easier. This type of glue,<br />

when applied to polypropylene<br />

fabric, does not need to be<br />

removed in order to recycle the<br />

nonwoven. One company even<br />

offered an adhesive whose ingredients<br />

included material made<br />

from recycled polypropylene fiber<br />

from mattresses.<br />

In the world of foams, manufacturers<br />

were interested in making<br />

foams taller — and softer. Plus,<br />

infusions of copper and graphite<br />

were still going strong. One<br />

exhibitor showcased lighter<br />

foam formulations to reduce the<br />

amount of fuel needed to ship<br />

the material.<br />

Ticking suppliers also tapped into<br />

the sustainability zeitgeist. Many<br />

Events<br />

highlighted the use of sustainable<br />

yarns in their fabrics. And attendees<br />

saw a new twist in ticking<br />

— the use of artificial intelligence<br />

to help generate design ideas.<br />

In terms of look and feel, fabric<br />

colors trended toward calming<br />

pastels and a feeling of peace<br />

and serenity.<br />

In addition to showing the latest<br />

innovations, the event provided<br />

a taste of a hopeful future for the<br />

bedding industry.<br />

“It was great to see so many<br />

people for what seemed like a<br />

very busy show all three days,”<br />

said Chad Antinori, general<br />

manager of Future Coil, headquartered<br />

in Tampa, Florida.<br />

“Customers we talked to seemed<br />

to be excited about new innovations<br />

and much more ready to<br />

buy than ISPA 2022.” In fact, all<br />

According to data provided by the Türkiye Exporters Assembly (TİM), exports<br />

of Türkiye decreased by 4.1 percent in March compared to the same period of<br />

last year and resulted in an export value of 22.5 billion dollars. The chemicals<br />

industry that achieved an export value of over 3 billion dollars became the<br />

second industry to export the most in March. While there was a general<br />

decrease in exports in March, the chemicals industry achieved a 5.6 percent<br />

<strong>Sleep</strong>ing soundly on<br />

tempered springs<br />

If you slept like a dream on your mattress last night, it may in part be due<br />

to the heat treatment of the springs in your mattress. Mattress springs are<br />

tempered during their manufacturing process. For this month’s blog we<br />

will start by discussing the history of the mattress and how it developed<br />

into using springs for comfort. Then we will talk about why springs are<br />

tempered and how the tempering process effects the steel.<br />

<strong>Sleep</strong>ing on the cold, hard<br />

ground has always been terribly<br />

uncomfortable. People<br />

began sleeping on primitive beds<br />

about 10,000 years ago, during the<br />

Neolithic period. The word “mattress”<br />

comes from the medieval Arabic<br />

al-matrah, which means “large<br />

cushion or rug for lying on.”<br />

Until the 1800s, people made their<br />

beds from natural materials, such<br />

as straw, feathers and horsehair.<br />

While fluffy, these fillers tended<br />

to clump together to make for a<br />

lumpy bed. The natural fillers would<br />

break down quickly, resulting in uncomfortable<br />

pits of mushy material.<br />

The fillers were also attractive to<br />

bugs and other unwanted bedmates.<br />

The industrial revolution forever<br />

changed the way people slept<br />

through the introduction of coil<br />

springs. First patented for use in<br />

chair seats, steel coil springs soon<br />

found their way into mattresses.<br />

The first coil spring for bedding<br />

earned a patent in 1865. It did<br />

not take long for mattress manufacturers<br />

to realize that placing<br />

a set of uniform springs inside<br />

layers of cushiony upholstery<br />

created a comfortable bed with a<br />

firm, resilient, and uniform tex-<br />

ture. Bedsprings provide the right<br />

balance of support and “give” to<br />

create a comfortable night’s sleep.<br />

In the blink of an eye, the dream of<br />

sleeping on the perfect mattress<br />

became a reality.<br />

Tempered Springs for a Good<br />

Night’s <strong>Sleep</strong><br />

There is more to making a comfortable<br />

bed than simply wrapping<br />

upholstery around any old set of<br />

springs, though. The springs and<br />

other materials must undergo<br />

certain manufacturing processes to<br />

improve their quality. For example,<br />

manufacturers may add flame-retardant<br />

chemicals to mattress upholstery<br />

and filling. They must also<br />

temper the springs to enhance the<br />

quality of the metal in the spring.<br />

The steel used in mattress springs<br />

is quite hard, especially after<br />

undergoing hardening processes<br />

of heating and quenching during<br />

manufacturing. While hardened<br />

steel is strong, it is also quite<br />

brittle. Internal strains caused by<br />

sudden cooling in the quenching<br />

bath can compromise the integrity<br />

of the steel. Tempering reduces the<br />

brittleness in the hardened steel<br />

of mattress springs, and removes<br />

internal strains associated with the<br />

quenching bath.<br />

Tempering is a manufacturing<br />

process that involves heating steel<br />

to a certain temperature and then<br />

cooling it to improve toughness<br />

and decrease brittleness by reducing<br />

the hardness of the steel. The<br />

exact temperature achieved during<br />

the heating process determines<br />

the amount of hardness removed.<br />

Manufacturers will temper very<br />

hard tools at low temperatures.<br />

They temper springs, like those<br />

used in mattresses, at roughly<br />

450F (232C). The tempering<br />

process gives mattress springs<br />

the flex that you feel when you lay<br />

down and the durability to withstand<br />

years of sleep filled nights.<br />

standard of safety and responsibility<br />

of materials, all while being<br />

economically circular through<br />

design and processing, according<br />

to a news release.<br />

C2C assesses products and<br />

companies based on several<br />

factors — from transparency in<br />

production to social fairness —<br />

to support businesses who are<br />

passionate about their product<br />

design and ethical trade.<br />

76 <strong>Sleep</strong><strong>Tech</strong> • <strong>May</strong> - <strong>June</strong>

The accreditation process aims<br />

to encourage safe and ethical<br />

product development and<br />

innovation, a vision aligned with<br />

Spinks’ history of manufacturing<br />

original and environmentally<br />

friendly components for the<br />

mattress and furniture industries,<br />

company officials said.<br />

Spinks will continue to work<br />

with C2C undergoing a biannual<br />

assessment to analyze its data<br />

and processes and optimize<br />

strategies to continue its trajectory<br />

in innovation and efficient and<br />

sustainable design. Its in-house<br />

approach overseeing all aspects<br />

of the production process aims<br />

to find opportunities to constantly<br />

improve these areas.<br />

“We are delighted to have our<br />

pocket springs for the mattress<br />

and seating markets become<br />

Cradle to Cradle Certified, meaning<br />

we can ensure all our products<br />

are as sustainable as possible,”<br />

said Darren Marcangelo,<br />

managing director of Spinks. “We<br />

believe we are the world’s first<br />

The rise of natural plant<br />

fibres being used in<br />

mattresses<br />

It’s safe to say that over the last few years the popularity of Natural<br />

Fibre mattresses has only continued to grow. In particular,<br />

mattresses that use Natural Plant Fibres are on the rise, with many<br />

sleepers opting for them instead of animal fibres.<br />

But what exactly has<br />

caused this rise? And<br />

what makes Natural Plant<br />

Fibres in mattresses a great<br />

choice for you?<br />

Excellent ethical materials<br />

Unlike synthetic alternatives,<br />

natural plant fibres can be continually<br />

replenished over time, and<br />

their supply isn’t nearly as limited<br />

as animal fibres. The plants that<br />

produce these fibres can be<br />

grown and harvested over and<br />

over, which has numerous environmental<br />

benefits, such as the<br />

absorption of C02. Mattresses<br />

that use these natural plant fibres<br />

are great for the environment,<br />

and even the organic wastes<br />

produced during processing can<br />

be recycled and used elsewhere.<br />

For example, organic plant flax<br />

is pretty much waste-free, as the<br />

oil pressed from flax seeds can<br />

be used in a wide range of other<br />

products.<br />

Vegetarian and vegan friendly<br />

Like many other people, you<br />

might be leading a vegetarian or<br />

vegan focused lifestyle, which<br />

means having a suitable mattress<br />

that doesn’t use any animal<br />

products or fibres is a must.<br />

Thankfully, mattresses that use<br />

natural plant fibres are perfectly<br />

suited for this, and we have a<br />

number of vegan and vegetarian<br />

friendly mattresses, such as our<br />

Effective temperature regulation<br />

Natural plant fibres are not only<br />

incredibly breathable, they have<br />

extremely effective moisture<br />

wicking properties. For anyone<br />

who happens to be a hot<br />

Natural Plant Fibre fillings can<br />

be a perfect solution to help you<br />

temperature throughout the<br />

colder nights.<br />

That fantastic feel<br />

One of the main reasons why<br />

these fibres have become so<br />

popular as a mattress filling is of<br />

course how they make you feel.<br />

These natural plant fibres are<br />

able to cater to any preference,<br />

thanks to the fact that they can<br />

How to efficiently roll pack<br />

a mattress<br />

Roll pack is one of the most<br />

common packaging methods<br />

for mattresses. This<br />

packaging method greatly saves<br />

the storage and transportation<br />

space of mattress manufacturers,<br />

and brings great convenience to<br />

the handling and transportation<br />

of mattresses. When we buy<br />

mattresses, we often see that the<br />

mattresses are rolled up in a box<br />

and sent to us when we receive<br />

them, especially sponge latex<br />

mattresses, etc. Now, let’s talk<br />

about how do we roll up a mattress<br />

with our automatic mattress<br />

compression, fold roll packing<br />

machine. If you are a mattress<br />

manufacturer who is troubled by<br />

the mattress packaging problem,<br />

then take a look at this article.<br />

First, pack the mattress<br />

Wrap the mattress by plastic film<br />

automatically by our machine,<br />

with hot sealing function to<br />

achieve a good packaging effect.<br />

Second, compress the mattress<br />

In order to achieve better rolling,<br />

the mattress is usually com-<br />

pressed. Of course, some mattresses<br />

with soft materials, such<br />

as latex mattresses, do not need<br />

to be compressed. It depends on<br />

the material of the mattress as<br />

well as your packaging requirements.<br />

Third, fold the mattress<br />

We provide two options of<br />

half-fold and three-fold, if your<br />

mattress size is large, we recommend<br />

choosing to fold the<br />

mattress.<br />

Then, roll up the mattress<br />

Use our mattress rolling machine<br />

to roll your mattress and end up<br />

with a rolled mattress for easy<br />

handling and storage.<br />

Finally, box the mattress<br />

The last step is to pack the rolled<br />

mattress into a box, which is<br />

usually beautifully printed with<br />

your logo, so that the mattress<br />

can be delivered to your customers.<br />

We have a variety of mattress<br />

compression & fold rolling machines<br />

for you to choose from.<br />

We have corresponding machines<br />

for all the above functions.<br />

If you only want to buy a machine<br />

with one of the above functions,<br />

we can also provide it for you. Of<br />

course, our full-featured integrated<br />

machine has all the above<br />

functions, and its functions can<br />

also be used independently. One<br />

machine can meet all your mattress<br />

packaging needs.<br />

that it is not enough to enter<br />

the market only with the quality<br />

product-competitive price index,<br />

and emphasized that the ISPA<br />

Expo fair is of vital importance for<br />

them. Yılmaz made the following<br />

statements after the exhibition;<br />

“In addition to offering quality<br />

products and competitive prices,<br />

it is necessary to explain<br />

your company and products to<br />

customers very well and increase<br />

your awareness in the eyes of<br />

customers. It is necessary to<br />

convince customers by informing<br />

them well on issues such as long<br />

transit time, supply process planning.<br />

Since all these are elements<br />

that involve a certain process,<br />

we have taken the first steps of<br />

this process with the products<br />

we exhibited at this fair and the<br />

information we provided to our<br />

guests who visited our stand. In<br />

this context, as a company, we<br />

have demonstrated a good performance<br />

during the fair with the<br />

preparations we made before the<br />

fair. We are currently in intensive<br />

negotiations with our guests we<br />

met at the fair. We are in an effort<br />

to do good work in terms of contributing<br />

to the exports of both<br />

our company and our country<br />

from the fair that we have worked<br />

very hard.”<br />

mattress production is the integration<br />

of smart technologies. Smart<br />

mattresses are equipped with<br />

sensors and embedded electronics<br />

that can monitor various<br />

aspects of the user’s sleep, such<br />

as sleep cycles, heart rate, and<br />

body temperature. This data can<br />

be analyzed to provide personalized<br />

sleep recommendations and<br />

improve overall sleep quality.<br />

Mattress spring machine<br />

The mattress spring machine is a<br />

crucial component of the mattress<br />

manufacturing process. It is<br />

responsible for the production of<br />

the inner springs that provide support<br />

and comfort to the mattress.<br />

The evolution of mattress spring<br />

machines has greatly improved the<br />

efficiency and quality of the springs<br />

produced.<br />

Modern pocket spring machine utilize<br />

eliminates the need for traditional<br />

contact-based spring forming<br />

methods, reducing wear and tear<br />

on the machinery and improving<br />

the overall lifespan of the equipment.<br />

Non-contact coil forming<br />

also enables better control over<br />

the shape and characteristics of<br />

the springs, resulting in enhanced<br />

mattress performance.<br />

The incorporation of advanced<br />

wire-guiding systems in mattress<br />

spring machines has also contributed<br />

to improved efficiency. These<br />

systems ensure accurate wire<br />

feeding and eliminate the chances<br />

of wire tangling or misalignment<br />

during the spring formation process.<br />

This leads to faster production<br />

times and reduces the need<br />

for manual intervention, resulting<br />

in increased productivity and<br />

cost-effectiveness.<br />

Mattress packing machine<br />

The mattress packing machine<br />

is an essential component of the<br />

mattress production process,<br />

responsible for compressing and<br />

packaging the finished mattresses.<br />

Over the years, the evolution of<br />

very productive for us<br />

Serkan Elitaş, CEO of Hasplast, said after ISPA Expo <strong>2024</strong> that the<br />

exhibition was productive for them and that they have already<br />

started preparations for the ISPA exhibition to be held in Orlando<br />

in 2026.<br />

Elitaş said that they had the<br />

opportunity to hold b2b<br />

meetings with the important<br />

companies of the American<br />

market and that they evaluated<br />

the meetings well, and that they<br />

made consultations with smallscale<br />

companies to do business<br />

in the future. Elitaş made<br />

the following statements in his<br />

statement; “We had the chance<br />

to meet with many companies<br />

from our important markets at<br />

the ISPA <strong>2024</strong> exhibition held in<br />

Columbus Ohio. The situation<br />

and future of the market were<br />

discussed with both our existing<br />

and potential customers. The<br />

majority of the visitors we hosted<br />

at our stand were companies<br />

with the capacity to export the<br />

products we presented, while<br />

the possibility of doing business<br />

with small-scale producers in<br />

the future was evaluated and<br />

ideas were exchanged. In this<br />

respect, ISPA <strong>2024</strong> exhibition<br />

was very productive for Hasplast.<br />

In 2026, we have already started<br />

our preparations for the ISPA<br />

exhibition to be held in Orlando,<br />

and we hope that Orlando will be<br />

even more productive.”<br />
