Founded over 35 years ago, Latex International is the largest Talalay Latex producer in the world. Our Talalay material is used in millions of the finest mattresses, pillows and toppers.
Currently, there are only two companies that go the extra mile to produce this extraordinary sleep material and we are the only one producing in the USA. Our team is proud to make what is widely regarded as the finest Talalay Latex in the world. We are driven by our quality standards which improve peoples’ lives every day, and night.
Working in close partnership with mattress manufacturers and top retailers we are advancing the reach of latex bedding products around the globe.
Latex International was literally started in the basement of a local VFW in Connecticut by two friends who worked together and lost their jobs following a devastating factory fire. With grit, determination, and a lot of support from their families and community, their facility soon grew to 15,000 square feet and produced its first latex pillow within two years. By 1979, Bill & Steve had established relationships with national mattress manufacturers. In 1985, the company relocated to a 284,000 square foot facility in Ansonia, Connecticut, to support its growing business in mattress cores, furniture cushions, pillows, mattress toppers and cosmetic applicators as well as custom-designed products for industrial sectors such as the automotive industry. After 18 years of success the company reinvested and rebuilt the worlds’ finest, state-of-the-art facility in Shelton, Connecticut where all of our Talalay Latex is produced today. This flexible manufacturing facility serves more than 500 retail customers world-wide. The company also operates four custom fabrication sites where the block Talalay Latex is cut, shaped and distributed.
“Our entire organization has been designed to foster ingenuity and creativity from initial product development to finished product & partner support. We are leading the advancement of latex bedding products through the development of innovative Talalay Latex formulations, product designs and partner training.
Latex International puts the power of transparent information in the hands of consumers so they can make informed purchasing decisions. Helping people understand the many differences within the latex world, from cost & quality to sleep benefits, will clarify the “muddy” waters of available latex information and allow consumers to make their best decisions for themselves.”
