We' are a family owned and operated company and enjoy the pride of handcrafting a product that is made in the United States of America and always will be. Our springs are made by Leggett & Platt, which make springs for all the major companies.

Joe and Rita enjoy now what many years of hard work can do and affords us the luxury of taking the time to answer all your questions and also answer all those "whats and whys" that the grandchildren ask. Together, we have 5 children, 2 chosen sons, 12 grandchildren, 7 greatgrandchildren and two beautiful 2 dogs (Sheba and Bella). We have no employees, only family and friends who help out from time to time.

Joe has been in the mattress manufacturing business since 1956. He began learning the trade in his father's family owned mattress business (known as Simmons & Simmons Bedding Company, founded in 1941). Joe established Custom Bedding, Inc. in 1976 to fill the need for a more personalized service to customers requiring odd size mattress sets. He later began to manufacture prescription, orthopedic, and special designed mattress sets for those who were not satisfied with conventional bedding. In 1994, Joe and his wife, Rita, along with their son opened a factory direct shop in San Leon, Texas. Joe and Rita live on Dickinson Bay, and continue producing special and standard size mattresses.
