As a venerable manufacturer of premium mattresses and box springs in the Western United States, McRoskey San Francisco has constantly striven for improvement in their operations with a focus on customer comfort. With a 25,000 square foot manufacturing facility and significant equipment & labor investments over the past century, the company was eager to modernize operations but not lose the artisan quality craftsmanship of its products. The company chose Atollogy, a leading Smart Manufacturing platform for manufacturers, as its partner to seamlessly blend its traditional manufacturing processes with Atollogy’s data collection and feedback solution.

“Community is important to us and San Rafael is such a welcoming place,” said CEO Robin McRoskey Azevedo. “We’ve made connections through walk-ins, as well as being more convenient to our long-time Marin, Sonoma and Napa customers.

Reducing the barriers for current and potential customers informed our recent decision to negotiate a longer lease.”
