Emma and Beter Bed Holding are waking up the European mattress market

Today, Emma and Beter Bed Holding are putting their signatures on a collaborative contract for the Benelux and DACH countries (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland). Europe`s most successful `mattress startup` Emma and market leader Beter Bed will be enhancing each other`s qualities with this contract. By joining forces, the consumer will be even better served both online and offline. The retail formats of Beter Bed and Matratzen Concord will include a full assortment from Emma in their stores. For Emma, this collaboration means a new, analogue distribution outlet that offers high name recognition, the option to test out the mattress, and exceptional sales advice.

Customer satisfaction and service
The strategy that makes Beter Bed Holding NV so successful, is characterised by an extensive assortment, competitive prices, extremely customer-oriented thinking, and in-depth services. The Beter Bed and Matratzen Concord formats align seamlessly with the core and brand values of Emma. `Together, we will stimulate both the online and offline market a new impulse`, according to Manuel Mueller, CEO of the Bettzeit Gruppe.

Online expertise
Due to the collaboration with Emma, Better Bed Holding anticipates that a younger client base will be attracted to its stores and websites, which will increase its market share. `For us, an alliance with Europe`s fastest-growing online mattress start up is a fantastic addition to our product offerings that will contribute to the growth of Beter Bed and Matratzen Concord`, explains Ton Anbeek, Statutory Director of Beter Bed Holding NV.
