Let’s take a look at the history behind this company, what they specialize in and some of theirmost popular products.

History of the Jamison Mattress Brand

History of the Jamison Mattress Brand

Jamison was founded in 1883 and the business has stayed true to the same simple philosophy throughout its history. From its earliest days Jamison was a supplier to the hospital market, providing high quality hand-made beds for motels and hotels.

From humble beginnings Jamison has grown into a multinational giant but the company has tried to remain true to its roots. In addition to Marriott, Jamison also supplies mattresses to Intercontinental Hotels, Choice Hotels and hundreds of retailers.

Now let’s take a look at what sets Jamison apart from other mattress makers in terms of their innovations in mattress design.

Innerspring Mattresses: Smart Coil

Innerspring mattresses are still the most widely used type of mattress around the world, and Jamison have developed their own technology in this field. The Jamison Smart Coil makes their innerspring beds somewhat different from many others on the market.

In most innerspring mattresses, all the coils are oriented in the same direction – they all “spiral” the same way. In a smart coil mattress, the springs alternate in the direction of the spiral. The reduces the effect of movement on the bed, so when you’re sleeping on a Smart Coil mattresses with your partner your movement is less likely to be felt by them.

This lack of movement transfer is traditionally an advantage of other mattress types over innersprings, but through the Smart Coil design Jamison have been able to bring this advantage to cheaper innerspring models.

In addition to Smart Coil mattresses, Jamison has developed a handful of other innerspring mattress types as well as springless mattresses, latex mattresses and memory foam mattresses.
