Partnership Opens Distribution in Caribbean and Central/South American Markets

DOWNLITE, the nation's premiere manufacturer of down and feather bedding, announced a strategic partnership with New York-based Kassatex Fine Linens that will give the company additional market penetration and distribution channels throughout the Caribbean and Central/South American regions.

“We are excited to welcome Kassatex as a strategic international distribution partner,” said Joel Collins, Manager of Business Development for DOWNLITE.

“Kassatex has a great reputation in the international and domestic arena for quality and customer service excellence. This partnership will give us an expanded opportunity in the Caribbean and Central/South American markets to build key market share and introduce consumers to our high quality products.”

Kassatex will have sole representation rights, exclusive of institutional accounts, for all DOWNLITE products in the Caribbean and Central/South American markets. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“We are delighted to be a DOWNLITE strategic distribution partner,” said Ernesto Khoudari, President of Kassatex, a wholesale distributor of bed and bath textiles.“This is a great opportunity for us to enrich our product offerings and for our customers to have easy access to the finest quality of down and down alternative bedding products.”

Mason, Ohio-based DOWNLITE is America's premiere manufacturer of down and feather bedding. A descendant of a 100-year-old feather processing company, DOWNLITE began to make down comforters and pillows in the late seventies. DOWNLITE is recognized as the leader in quality and service. Their cutting edge development and innovative products are redefining the bedding industry.

DOWNLITE searches the globe for the finest fabrics and fills available. These quality materials are combined with unsurpassed workmanship in their Cincinnati factory. DOWNLITE's product line has been selectively expanded into unique synthetic fills that perform very closely to down.

DOWNLITE products are featured by some of the nation's most upscale retailers including Macy's, Nordstrom, Dillard's, Eddie Bauer and Williams Sonoma Home.
