Aero is the recognized market leader in high quality, air-filled bedding products, including the popular AeroBed. The Company offers a full line of inflatable mattresses and air-filled pools, furniture and other leisure products. Aero's products are sold through a diverse network, including retail, catalog, QVC, website and television.
Trivest acquired Aero from a family who was no longer actively managing the business. Under Trivest’s ownership and at the direction of the Company’s existing CEO, Aero achieved extraordinary growth due to a number of initiatives, including the introduction of innovative new products and a shift in Aero’s advertising model (from 30-minute infomercials to short form 60 second TV spots), which led to significantly increased sales in traditional retailers and a doubling of EBITDA.
