WHO WE ARE

Our Sleep EZ family-owned business started in 1976 and we’re now in our 3rd generation as an independent mattress manufacturer. We strongly believe “we’re not good because we’re OLD…we’re old because we’re GOOD.”

WHAT WE DO

We have always specialized in the finest mattresses and have been able to deliver top quality at the best prices because we are factory direct with no middleman costs. Our attention to product detail and customer service has resulted in both a loyal customer following over these 38 years and a reputation that we’re very proud of.

OUR LATEX MATTRESS SPECIALITY

We were one of the very first companies nationwide to offer latex mattresses online through the internet. We are currently the ONLY latex mattress manufacturer on the internet that carries and offers all 3 types of latex for your mattress choice–Dunlop 100% Natural, Talalay 100% Natural, and Talalay Blended latex.

Sleep EZ President

Dear Valued Customers,
Thank you for visiting our website and the opportunity to serve you. We are a third generation, family-owned, factory direct mattress manufacturer in Phoenix, Arizona. Our business model is very basic and can be stated as, quality, service, price.
As one of the oldest independent mattress manufacturers in the United States, we have thrived with the support of our loyal customers for the past 41 years. My 18 years in this industry started in the factory from the ground up in all phases of designing and making quality mattresses. One thread that always runs through our company is the dedication to quality first. I hope that is apparent as you read our reviews and testimonials.
Our underlying feeling is that the most important product we deliver is “value” as that is ultimately how we will be judged and remembered.

1966 FIRST GENERATION

Joe Wolfe started Wolfe Manufacturing in 1966 as a wholesale distributor of mattresses to retail stores and hotels in the Southwest. It was a second career after semi-retirement as one of the largest home builders in the U.S.

1974 SECOND GENERATION

Larry joined the mattress industry in 1974 with an accounting and marketing background. He purchased mattress equipment and opened a manufacturing facility called Paradise Bedding to service existing customers of Wolfe Manufacturing. Larry began building mattresses from the ground up with strict attention to the traditional hands on approach. This was subsequently passed along to Shawn and adhered to in Sleep EZ mattress lines today.

1976 LARRY ACQUIRED THE SLEEP EZ NAME in 1976 which became his trademark “mattress line.” In 1982, he opened Sleep EZ retail stores in the Phoenix area promoting the long-standing “Sleep EZ” brand which was first introduced in 1935.

1992 LATEX MATTRESS SPECIALIST

Sleep EZ introduced “Lifetime Dreams” natural latex into it’s mattress line. Since that time latex mattresses have become Sleep EZ’s premier mattress line. We have been specializing in natural latex for over 20 years.

1995 THIRD GENERATION

Shawn entered the business while going to school and began learning mattress construction from the ground up working in the factory cutting, sewing, building mattresses, right through to deliveries.

1998 INTERNET HERE WE COME

Sleep EZ entered the internet market specializing in latex mattresses, latex mattress toppers and latex pillows. We encountered a lot of skeptics who questioned that Sleep EZ could manufacture and ship latex mattresses across the country but we wanted to be ahead of what we saw coming in the changing marketplace–and we were.

2005 SHAWN BECOMES PRESIDENT OF SLEEP EZ

The changing of the guard was inevitable with Shawn’s work ethic and dedication to making sure his customers received the greatest value for their mattress dollar. Even today if you call Sleep EZ there’s a good chance you will talk to Shawn. But even though Sleep EZ is his passion, he still puts family first. Picture to right is Shawn and wife Jennifer, a 6th grade teacher in the Phoenix school system, with Isabella and Melody who is the future of WNBA basketball.

2006 JEREMY MATHIS JOINS SLEEP EZ AS VP OF SALES

Continuing our family theme, Shawn brought his cousin Jeremy in as VP of sales and production as internet sales volume surpassed both our retail and wholesale sales. With his extensive background in sales, production and shipping he brought a new dimension to SleepEZ. Jeremy can be reached at our factory/showroom at 900 N Scottsdale Rd, Tempe, AZ.

Phoenix Latex Mattress Factory-Since 1976

This is where we actually cut all latex and memory foam to size, quilt material, sew covers, package, and ship our mattresses. It takes specialized equipment and proper facilities to manufacture mattresses and be classified as a true “factory direct.” In today’s marketplace, the term is used all too often by those who are merely retailers. The next time you encounter someone using the term “factory direct” ask them what they mean, and where their factory is located.

Showroom, with a complete line of latex, memory foam, and innerspring mattresses is open to the public Monday thru Saturday 10 am – 6 pm.

We know you have a lot of choices, and mattress shopping can be confusing as well as frustrating. We also understand that everyone is different and one mattress does not fit all. By addressing issues that affect your sleep and individual comfort needs, we arm you with information to make your decision easier.

From the inception, it has been our plan to build the best mattress on the market. We believe that goal was achieved with our “Lifetime Dreams” sleep line, built around natural latex, the ultimate in comfort for 60 years. Our customers believe it too.

We Make Mattress Buying Simple with Low Overhead and Factory Direct pricing.

OUR LATEX SUPPLIERS – The Best In The World

SLEEP EZ-ONLY MANUFACTURER OFFERING YOU A CHOICE OF LATEX

It goes without saying that to produce the best mattresses we must use the best components. We are blessed to have Latexco, Latex International, and Sleep Comp as our latex suppliers. They have been chosen because of their dedication to quality, service, and reputation and we think the feeling is mutual. Each of the three has their own manufacturing process and brands, or in the case of Sleep Comp represent several different latex manufacturers around the world such as Latex Green and Radium.
