CORONA, Calif.-FXI Holdings, parent company of Foamex, has purchased a stake in memory-foam mattress manufacturer Anatomic Global.
Under the terms of the agreement, a new corporation called Anatomic Holdings has been formed, with David Farley, chairman and CEO of Anatomic Global, remaining in those posts. A spokesman for Anatomic said the two companies did not disclose how large a stake FXI has in the new company.
