ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plan of spring suppliers to increase their sales for the bedding industry in the U.S. Leggett & Platt Inc. announced that the increase will be effective on April 14, 2008. According to Perry Davis, president of L&P, this is due to the steel increases on global demand for scrap steel and the shortage of rod at competitive pricing from international producers.
