In 2013 Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company (the parent company of beachTuff) changed its name to HSM, an evolution from a spring manufacturer that was founded in 1944 to a global company of nearly 2,500 employees that offers high-value manufacturing solutions for a wide range of markets with diverse challenges.
In addition to the Lazee Move by beachTuff, HSM offers an array of integrated assemblies. From advanced mattress builds to state of the art transportation seating, these products use HSM produced metal frames, rebond seat backs, polyurethane foams ? along with integrated fiber, wiring and metal components.
Even as the company expands its presence in diversified markets, the home furnishings industry represents the largest segment of HSM?s customer base. With more than 300 foam formulations nationwide, HSM is one of the United States? largest producers of foam. Drawing upon its product development and research and design capabilities, the manufacturer pioneered such innovations as Code Red II combustion inhibitive foam and EnduroFoam premium performance foam and Preserve, the first polyurethane foam made with a soybean-based chemical compound, which reduces the use of petroleum-based chemicals. The bio-based visco gel foam combines Visco Memory foam with cooling gel to provide increased comfort and consistent support.
