Deutch - AUPING brings rest to the world

Deutch  - Auping is the largest independent bed manufacturer in the Netherlands. The company has been in business since 1888, when Johannes Albertus Auping developed a mesh bed with a springy, ventilating base under the mattress. Auping has made a commitment to achieve Cradle to Cradle Gold Certification by 2020. Their products can be recycled at the highest level, and they utilize renewable energy. In addition, they’re providing optimal working and social conditions for sustainable labor deployment of all stakeholders.
