Photo Gallery: L&P Golf Tournament for United Way

On August 25, Leggett & Platt hosted the 7th annual Golf Tournament to benefit the Carthage Area United Way. A little bit of rain didn’t even dampen our spirits – a total of 44 teams competed throughout the day in the golf scramble, poker tournament, and hole-in-one and putting contests. Altogether we raised approximately $18,000! We couldn’t have made the day successful without the players, corporate sponsors, and our 50 volunteers. Here are some of our favorite photos from the day!

Part of Your Everyday Life

“As a recruiter for Leggett & Platt, I’m always telling people they come into contact with our products every day and just don’t realize it. Little did I know (until today) that my very own favorite-spot-in-the-house couch boasts Leggett reclining mechanisms! Leggett & Platt really is a part of everyday life!”

– Madison Fehring, Talent Advisor/Relocation Coordinator at L&P

The First Official Patent

In 1883, J.P. Leggett invented the first spiral-steel, coiled bedspring. It was revolutionary in design and offered the best night’s sleep available. Leggett was granted an official patent in 1885, as indicated by this drawing from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
