In 1883, American inventor J.P. Leggett reached out and shook hands with a blacksmith named C.B. Platt. That shake formed a partnership that would shape the way the world sleeps.
To solve the sagging sleep surface problem plaguing the world, Leggett & Platt started manufacturing steel coil bedsprings in the small town of Carthage, Missouri. Ever since then, we’ve been innovating around innerspring technology and spring-making equipment. Today, Leggett & Platt creates revolutionary products in a variety of industries all over the world.
We are a diversified manufacturer that designs and produces engineered products found in most homes and automobiles. Leggett & Platt is the leading U.S.-based manufacturer of bedding components, automotive seat support and lumbar systems, specialty bedding foams and private label finished mattresses, components for home and work furniture, flooring underlayment, adjustable beds, and bedding industry machinery.
We may be a giant in the bedding industry, but we came from much humbler beginnings. That one handshake turned into many more along the way, creating a global company with more than 20,000 employee-partners who make products that enhance people’s lives.
