Shelton’s Latex Foam Co. says it’s recovered from fires


SHELTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Latex International says it’s back after two recent fires, and that the official investigation into the fires is complete.

“All employees have returned to work and production has ramped up to full capacity,” according to company officials, who said an “extensive cleanup” was done after the fires.

The company said it had begun “producing its most popular latex cores and will start manufacturing additional products by the end of the week. Manufacturing of rolled goods is at full capacity and product is being shipped from both Connecticut and Texas.”

“We have eased our way back into full production to assure that we don’t experience any further issues. I am pleased that the clean up was executed quickly allowing us to return to business as usual with minimal disruption to our customers, said Latex International President and Chief Executive Officer David Fisher. “We anticipate that in addition to fulfilling client orders, we will start making samples of the new Pure LatexBLISS products being featured at Las Vegas Market at the end of the month.”

The company, founded in 1975, said it is the “world’s largest manufacturer of latex mattresses and pillows, sold under many leading brand names through strategic business partners.”
