Zeno Mattress, manufacturer of custom mattresses and bedding for yachts, has relocated a short distance from its former Fort Lauderdale factory.
The new facility at 671 NW Fourth Ave. (33311) has a “better looking” showroom, said owner and third generation Zeno, Judi Zeno.
The factory can continue to construct spring, foam or latex rubber mattresses to fit any application. The latex is hypoallergenic, mildew resistant and doesn’t get hot, Zeno said. The company also creates its own quilting to top the mattresses as well as bed linens, duvets and covers. It also creates the popular latex pillows.
One mattress on display in the showroom was constructed with “a hinge” that would enable stews to flip up just the end to access storage underneath without having to move the entire mattress.
“We’ve had designers and charter guests who like our product on boats ask for them in their homes,” Zeno said during a recent tour. “We can do anything.”
All beds and bedding are made to order in-house and normally take no more than 10 days, she said. The products are shipped all over the world.
The 65-year-old company, started by Judi Zeno’s grandfather, now has the fourth generation at work with her son, Ryan.
