L&P partners with Asian producer DK City for adjustable bed line

CARTHAGE, Mo. – Leggett & Platt said it has entered into an agreement with adjustable base producer DK City to be the company’s exclusive North American distributor.

DK City is a major adjustable bed producer, with operations in Asia.

The new adjustable bed base lineup will be on display at the Las Vegas Market in the DK City show space, World Market Center A-934.

In addition to providing sales support, Leggett & Platt will handle product distribution and after-sale services, including consumer warranties, officials said.

“We are pleased to announce our partnership with DK City, an experienced designer and producer of adjustable bases in Asia,” said Jay Thompson, president of L&P’s Adjustable Bed Group. “This alliance allows us to offer several high quality, unique designs with multiple delivery options for our customers.”

L&P and DK City will be showcasing several adjustable base models at the Las Vegas Market, including foldable base designs, the companies said.

“The foldable adjustable base is easy to transport and warehouse and is even easier to deliver and install,” said Alex Tuntomo, managing director of DK City. “It is specifically designed with the retailer and consumer in mind.”

“We are excited to launch our partnership with Leggett & Platt at the January Las Vegas Market,” said Tuntomo. “DK City has a long history supplying adjustable bases to the Asian market and we have worked with L&P to develop this program for North American consumers.”

DK City, founded in 1987, is based in Taichung, Taiwan, and has a factory in Jiashan, China. The company joined the contingent of bedding producers showing at the High Point Market last fall.
