Hasper to shape Royal Velvet for Soft-Tex
Thomas Russell -- Furniture Today, November 28, 2006
Cohoes,N.Y.–As Soft-Tex Manufacturing continues to expand its branded lineup of bed pillows, mattress pads, featherbeds and memory foam products, Eric Hasper joins the company as product manager, responsible for product design and development.
First in development is Royal Velvet, a license recently acquired by Soft-Tex for poly-filled bed pillows, mattress pads and memory foam products, all strong categories for the company.
Hasper was most recently a buyer with Filene’s Department Stores. He has worked in home textiles for most of his 17 years in merchandising, and served most of those years on May Company’s product development team.
Hasper will report to Arthur Perry, president and co-owner of Soft-Tex. Hasper said he is “fortunate to be able to design and set up their new showroom in the 230 Fifth Avenue Market Center Building. It’s going to be a great place to show all of our new designs.”
