GSG is not in the business of job placement for mattress manufacturers. However, we can help. The key is multi-tasking machines that maintain better uptime operation and demand little skilled training. This way you can improve your productivity rate by getting greater product from fewer required workers per hour.

Here are a few GSG examples:

High-speed 1600 RPM production with easier maintenance burden.

Mattress border, measure cut machine automatically measures and cuts stored border product sections.


Creative handle sewing system with computerized efficiency.

Manufacturing staffing conditions are not about to change anytime soon. So if you're experiencing a tough time keeping a qualified workforce in place or fear the thought that you may have to replace lost skilled labor in the future, prepare now.
