Company History

Mid South Mattress Company was established in 1992, from the figurative ashes of the Chattanooga Mattress Co. The Chattanooga Mattress Company was once a fine licensee of the Serta Bedding Company, but through many years and a generational change of management, the business failed.


Joe Phillips, the current owner of Mid South Mattress Company, began his career in 1968 with Sealy Inc out of Louisville, Kentucky. After two years of successfully building a sales territory, he was recruited to go to work for the Tri-State Bedding Company of Bowling Green Kentucky. Tri-State Bedding Company was a three state licensee of Spring Air Bedding. Joe Phillips spent the next 20 years of his life helping Spring Air capture an ever growing market share in that three state region and nationwide. In 1988 Tri-State Bedding Company sold its license, and after fulfilling his contractual obligation to the new license holders, Joe Phillips, along with his wife Fay, purchased the assets of the Chattanooga Mattress Company.


We, as a family, have spent the last 20 years building up Mid South Mattress Company into a well respected independent manufacturer of bedding. Over the years, as different “Name Brand” licenses have come available, we are always on the short list of people approached as a license candidate. Many years ago we decided to remain independent and build our own brands of quality bedding. We currently produce three lines of bedding at our facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Orthopedic Line, The Posture Gallery and our flagship line of bedding, The Medipedic.
