Gentherm And Intercoil To Launch Luxury Heated/Cooled Mattress Products In United Arab Emirates

Stocks in this article: THRM

NORTHVILLE, Mich., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Gentherm (NASDAQ-GS: THRM), the global market leader and a developer of innovative thermal management technologies, and Intercoil International, the Dubai-based sleep products manufacturer and retailer, announced today the signing of an exclusive agreement to launch a line of specially designed, heated and cooled memory foam mattress products in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) starting in 2013.  The mattress products will feature Gentherm's Climate Control Sleep System™ (CCSS™) technology, which is a variation of the Company's highly successful Climate Control Seat™ (CCS™) technology offered in the global automotive market.

Gentherm will supply Intercoil with CCSS thermal conditioning systems to be installed in specially designed memory foam mattresses manufactured and sold by Intercoil International.  The CCSS mattress products will be available to purchase through Intercoil International stores and distributers throughout the UAE in 2013.  The CCSS mattress products will be sold under the Intercoil brand and be available in double, queen and king sizes.

"Intercoil is pleased to bring the latest mattress technology in the form of Climate Control Sleep Systems to the UAE," said Hassan A. Al-Hazeem, Intercoil International Managing Director.   "The launch of CCSS in the UAE gives consumers the choice to adjust their personal sleeping climate to the temperature they desire without having to heat or cool the entire bedroom or home."

"Intercoil International is a leading producer and retailer in the UAE mattress market.  By combining strengths, we believe we can offer consumers in the UAE a new level of sleeping comfort that they have never experienced before," said Gentherm President and Chief Executive Officer Daniel R. Coker.  "Since the launch of CCSS two years ago in the U.S., this technology has been well accepted and is increasing in demand as the rollout continues nationwide.  We expect further launches in new markets in 2013."

About CCSS

The Climate Control Sleep System (CCSS) is a highly-efficient, solid state thermoelectric device that thermally conditions ambient room air which is then distributed by high performance blowers to the surface of the mattress.  Each side of the mattress can be operated by remote controls independently by the occupant to 5 levels of heating or cooling comfort.  A clock and timer are also included in the master control unit to allow for preconditioning of the mattress and cycling in minute or hour increments for up to 8 hours of individualized comfort.
