2016 was an exciting year for Colgate Mattress. We collaborated with bloggers, participated in several promotions and received recognition for our innovative products. Here is a round up of some of the top the highlights:
Faces of Manufacturing
Dennis Wolkin, chief operating officer at Colgate Mattress Atlanta Corp. received the 2016 “Faces of Manufacturing” Award, an initiative of the Georgia Manufacturing Extension Partnership – Gamep at Georgia Tech at Georgia Tech.
A third-generation crib mattress maker, Wolkin was selected from hundreds of nominees across the state for his contributions to the manufacturing sector and its impact on Georgia’s economy.

TV personality and award-winning interior designer Anitra Mecadon took moms-to-be on a fun and informative journey to buying a safe, eco-friendly crib mattress in an episode of her digital series “Diaper Pad.” During the episode, Mecadon and husband, Adam Bret, visit the nation’s oldest family owned crib mattress maker, Colgate Mattress. They talk with our National Marketing Director, Terri Paul, and ultimately choose the EverTrue Diamond for their baby boy, Nash.
