Mel Trudell, President and New Business Development
Founder and President Mel Trudell first discovered a love for the handmade at age 15—during his first task at a mattress company: sweeping the factory floor. As simple as the job was, it gave him the unique opportunity to examine firsthand the industry’s modern standards and techniques. Mel soon discovered an urgent need for improvement. In subsequent years, after exploring the industry at every level and from every angle, Mel resolved to create Custom Comfort Mattress. He called upon the traditional American craft of mattress-making, beginning by personally constructing each mattress by hand. Mel has since built a family-owned business and several collections of luxury centered on an unswerving commitment to handcrafted quality.
