SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 20 /PRNewswire/ -- In October 2010 San Francisco luxury mattress maker McRoskey Mattress Company is celebrating its 111th anniversary of handcrafting the world's most comfortable mattresses and box springs.  This local, family-owned business, in the third generation of McRoskey family ownership, has a special place in San Francisco history.

"We have seen many changes in the mattress industry over the years and we have learned which mattress-making techniques result in wonderful comfort that lasts.  Those techniques are still applied today," said McRoskey owner and president Robin McRoskey Azevedo. "Our commitment to quality and comfort has not wavered through our 111 years in business."

McRoskey's San Francisco story began in 1899 when brothers Edward and Leonard McRoskey arrived from St. Louis with mattress-making equipment to sell.  Instead, they became manufacturers themselves.  McRoskey became the mattress of choice for the finest homes in San Francisco.  In the 1930s, Edward McRoskey's sons, Leonard and Robert, joined the business after graduating from Stanford University.  Today, Robert's daughter, Robin McRoskey Azevedo leads the McRoskey company's quest for handcrafted comfort for all.

Fun Historical Facts:

  • McRoskey has handcrafted approximately 200,000 mattresses since 1899.
  • McRoskey retains every order placed since 1921.
  • McRoskey customers run three, four and five generations deep.
  • McRoskey was one of the very few mattress manufacturers in San Francisco to survive the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906.  Following the earthquake, people gathered at the factory at 16th and Harrison Streets to buy any mattress as soon as it was made.
