Landon Capital acquires majority stake in Blue Bell

BOSTON – Landon Capital Partners said that an affiliate of Landon acquired a majority interest in Blue Bell Mattress. The date and financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed. Mark Kolovson and Steve Byer will continue to hold a minority interest in Blue Bell, officials said.

Blue Bell, headquartered in Hartford, Conn., manufactures mattresses and mattress foundations for sale under the King Koil and Natura brand names as well as private label brands to bedding and furniture retailers. The company has been in operation for more than 85 years making it one of the oldest and most established manufacturers in the industry with well-established relationships with some of the nation’s largest retailers throughout the country. The company manufactures a full line of innerspring, latex, hybrid and specialty foam mattresses across a broad range of retail price points, from promotional to high-end collections, the company said.

“We were attracted to Blue Bell based on its reputation as an exceptional supplier and its ability to provide a full suite of branded and private label products customized to meet the individual retailers’ needs,” said Chris Sullivan, managing partner of Landon. “We look forward to working closely with CEO Mark Kolovson and the company’s management team to grow the Blue Bell platform both organically and through strategic acquisitions.”
