Warrick Bell

Warrick leads Protect-A-Bed’s in-house product development efforts and develops fresh and innovative ideas to keep Protect-A-Bed and its customers at the leading edge of the market.


Protect-A-Bed offers a premium line of bedding and health protection products for pillows, mattresses and box springs. Protect-A-Bed’s mattress protector was originally developed and introduced in South Africa in 1980. Until the introduction of mattress protectors by Protect-A-Bed in 2000, the United States market was only familiar with mattress pads. Mattress pads were originally conceptualized when mattresses became thinner and less padded during the depression years.

The only necessary top-of-bed product is a protector that will protect the mattress from contaminants, and the sleeper from allergens – a Protect-A-Bed product. A mattress represents a considerable financial investment worthy of protection against accidents, allergens, and early deterioration. The success of the Protect-A-Bed mattress protectors with consumers is based on the fact that a mattress is in close personal use daily and demands hygienic protection.

In keeping with its culture of innovation, Protect-A-Bed has invested heavily in research and development for mattress encasements that address allergy sufferers, as well as the worldwide emerging bed bug problem. Protect-A-Bed was the first company to commission and successfully complete independent research on its products to prove that it is bed bug escape, entry and bite proof (US Patent No. 7,552,489). Most recently, new fabric technology has been introduced, along with an ergonomics certified pillow.


The team is dedicated to providing complete customer satisfaction and Protect-A-Bed’s promise is the assurance that they will not compromise on quality and service. Built on this philosophy, Protect-A-Bed supplies mattress and pillow protectors to 7 of the 11 top bedding specialists in the United States, several of the top 100 U.S. furniture chains, and all the major distributors in the pest control industry and hospitality industry. Protect-A-Bed products are also carried by national retailers like J.C. Penney, Macy’s and Sears. The company currently has in excess of 7,000 furniture and bedding store clients in the United States and dominates the pest control and hospitality markets with bedding protection products.

The key to Protect-A-Bed’s customer focus is a training program that is offered to major clients. The program has been developed to educate its clients’ sales forces about the features and benefits of the products, as well as the most effective approach and introduction techniques for the consumer.


Protect-A-Bed provides for the needs of its U.S. customers from its state of the art warehouse and distribution facility in Wheeling, Ill. In order to ensure seamless operations for its customers, Protect-A-Bed maintains significant inventory levels and has several manufacturing facilities worldwide.
