SWITLIK Survival Products Expands Manufacturing in Trenton, New Jersey
SWITLIK continues to be a leading manufacturer for the U.S. military as well as marine and aviation consumers. “We’ve been based in Trenton since 1920 and have never outsourced our work or jobs,” said Stanley Switlik II, CEO.
“We’re proud to continue contributing to the manufacturing comeback here in Trenton and the launch of our new division allows us to hire new employees while maintaining the loyal and multi-generational workforce who have made Switlik the continuing success it is today.”
Established in 1920, SWITLIK is known worldwide as a manufacturer of the highest quality sewn and heat-sealed safety and survival products for the aviation, marine, and military markets. With the launch of its Comfort Technology division, SWITLIK is expanding into the consumer market.
While working on an engineering development program to design a safer and more comfortable military jet ejection seat cushioning system, SWITLIK created a self-inflatable structure that is capable of being pressurized while retaining the original shape of the unsealed piece of foam, with just the push of a button. They call this process is called Seafoam, the patented process for sealing any type of open-cell foam with a unique polymer coating and pressurized valve.
Through testing, SWITLIK said they discovered it makes an incredibly comfortable mattress. Seafoam technology allows SWITLIK Comfort Technology to create true negative internal operating pressure, reducing the push back that all existing mattresses have when users lay on them.
“For us, starting with launching a Sleep System was a logical start. There are a whole host of issues wrong within the mattress industry that other manufacturers can’t talk about because they don’t have solutions for them. We’re raising awareness for these ‘new’ problems” said Switlik.
