Lippert Components introduces somnum® Sleeper Series pillows for long-haul drivers

Lippert Components, Inc. (LCI®), a leading supplier of highly engineered components to the mobile and leisure transportation industries, has introduced somnum® Sleeper Series pillows for long-haul, heavy truck drivers. These machine washable pillows are made with hypoallergenic down-alternative fill, and the covers are 100% cotton, 350 thread count, and double stitched to increase the lifespan of the pillow.

Designed to endure the ever-fluctuating temperatures and persistent moisture commonly found in sleeper environments, somnum premium pillows provide the perfect balance of support and comfort for a good night’s sleep, helping increase driver alertness while on the road. Featuring both soft and firm options, the pillows come in two sizes, jumbo and king. In addition to their premium comfort level, the somnum Sleeper Series pillows are 100% machine-washable, making it easier for them to retain their original freshness and shape.

Mike Padrnos, Business Development Manager at LCI, explained, “A key purpose of a pillow is to keep your neck comfortably and safely aligned with your spine. Having a great pillow contributes to a good night’s sleep when you’re at home. That being said, pillow quality is just as important for truck drivers who travel long hours and sleep in their trucks.”

Padrnos continued, “Furthermore, while alignment is important, we’ve also paid special attention to personal comfort by ensuring that the somnum Sleeper Series features a variety of different pillow options. Everyone has their own personal preferences, so we created both soft and firm pillow options.”

In the fall of 2018, Donna Mooney, VP of Human Resources at Titan Transfer, Inc., a freight carrier company, sought to find a “different and unique” gift for the company’s 400(+) trucks and corresponding drivers for National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. “We tried all the typical items: polo shirts, hats, gift cards, etc. I spent quite a bit of time online, shopping to find just the right gift. The somnum pillow caught my interest. From our very first conversation, the staff at LCI were top-notch with their customer service and made sure the process was easy and our needs were met,” stated Mooney. “The pillows ended up being a tremendous hit with our drivers, so much so that we had several drivers order additional pillows for their residential homes,” she concluded.

“We’ve heard that truck drivers love somnum pillows from direct feedback at truck shows and from fleets like Titan Transfer that have introduced them to their drivers through their company stores or given them out as driver gifts. A new pillow is a small but meaningful upgrade to a Class 8 sleeper berth,” Padrnos stated. “Fleets that are using somnum pillows as part of their driver incentive/reward programs are receiving gratitude from drivers for such a thoughtful gesture. Realistically, many people aren’t replacing their pillows nearly enough.”
