Tempur-Pedic International, Inc. is a manufacturer and distributor of pillows and mattresses made from viscoelastic foam. Their headquarters are located on the Colstream Research Campus in Kentucky, Lexington. They also have manufacturing plants in Virginia, New Mexico, Duffield and San Salvador. This company was originally based on NASA’s research in order to develop a material that would improve survivability odds in case of an accident.

The first tempur mattress was introduced by Fegardala World Foams, which is a Swedish technical foam firm. The brand was then brought to the US in 1992 and the company that is known nowadays as Tempur-Pedic, Inc was founded. The company went public in 2003 and in 2012 they merged with Sealy Corporation in order to create the world’s biggest bedding company. Even though the companies are together, they still operate separately.

Tempur is the only mattress and pillow production company that is recognized and certified by NASA and the Space Foundation. Their story began when NASA developed a pressure absorbing material that will later be used to support astronauts during lift-off or the strain. Tempur pillows and cushions provide an exceptional way of distributing pressure and weight evenly.
