Pi Day and Pie

Happy Pi Day!

To celebrate, members of our Talent Acquisition team (Emily Larson, Eliysha Mircetic, and Lori Jones) connected and networked with engineering students at the University of Arkansas.

We hear there was an abundance of pie. We’re wondering how we missed the invite.

Happy Birthday to J.P. and Cornelius!

It’s time to party! Even though our founders were born 7 years and several states apart, they coincidentally shared a very special day every March 6th.

Happy Birthday to the duo who started it all!

Happy National Inventors’ Day!

In celebration of National Inventors’ Day, we’re sharing the work of our original inventor, J.P. Leggett. Here’s our very first official patent!

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.
