Chinese mattress manufacturer Mlily has expanded its presence in the UK by signing a five-year global partnership with Manchester United Football Club.
The agreement marks Man United’s first ever official mattress and pillow partner, as Mlily will now supply its Aon Training Complex in Carrington with its mattresses to help players maintain quality sleep.
Mlily, which is a leading mattress and pillow brand of Shanghai-based Healthcare Ltd. Co, produces its products in two locations in Jiangsu, China, along with the company’s research and development testing laboratories and distribution facilities.
The company said that the partnership will ‘strengthen the brand and enhance its recognition further’. The Mlily’s brand will also be visible on league matchdays at Old Trafford, featuring on United’s digital perimeter boards.
Richard Arnold, Manchester United group managing director, said: “Mlily has an established track record of producing a high quality product. We want to make the best use of the latest technology and expertise that can help our team, which in this case is the sleep and recovery of players.
“A global partnership with us will certainly help Mlily achieve its global ambitions and bring a high quality product to our worldwide family of fans. We look forward to working together.”
James Ni, founder of Mlily, added: “We have been active in multiple channels of the bedding industry for several years. Our experience along with our commitment to producing high quality mattresses and pillows has resulted in stress free sleep and healthier lives for customers. These results are now available to Manchester United’s players and will find a wider audience due to our global partnership.”
Mlily currently exports worldwide to countries including Australia, Canada, France, Japan, Malaysia, UK, and the USA.
