Forbes Magazine Honors San Francisco Mattress Company
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - February 23, 2016) - McRoskey Mattress Company today announced Forbes Magazine has named it to its 2016 "America's Best Small Companies" list. The 117-year-old San Francisco firm was selected for its products' excellence, and the company's management and contributions to its community and to society.
Forbes refers to the companies on its list as "25 Small Giants that have chosen to be great instead of big". Founded in San Francisco in 1899,McRoskey continues to use proprietary construction techniques and materials to make its mattresses and box springs, and is truly a "maker" -- a manufacturer that crafts a premium product. McRoskey advises and sells directly to loyal customers at its retail showrooms in Palo Alto and San Francisco, ensuring their purchase pays for quality craftsmanship and materials -- not a middleman. Not only are customers loyal; employees are, too. Of the current 30 employees, 15 have been there for 15 years, 2 for 20 years and one for 36 years.
"I value all our customers, but among my favorites are those who choose our mattress because they value quality and trust McRoskey -- even though the price is an investment," said Robin McRoskey Azevedo, CEO.
McRoskey is a third generation family-owned business led by CEO Robin McRoskey Azevedo, the granddaughter of one of the founders. She has worked at the firm since 1980, learning the company values from her father and uncle, as well as how to build the business and manufacture a premium product. Emblematic of McRoskey's company values, Ms. Azevedo is a founding board member of SF Made, an organization that supports companies that manufacture locally-made products. McRoskey CEOs have also been members of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce and Rotary Club for over 50 years.
Forbes selected companies for its list based on several criteria, including that the company is/has: acknowledged as outstanding by industry experts; recognized for its contributions to society; maintained its financial health for at least ten years; and frontline employees that have real interaction with top leaders.
