Exciting things are happening here at VIB because of the quality of our employees, products, and services. We just wrapped up an incredibly busy college mattress season - thank you to all the schools in Virginia (and Maryland) that buy our mattresses. The picture on this page is from the beautiful Lawn Dorms of the University of Virginia who hosted a few of our employees from our Charlottesville Plant to thank them for their outstanding and speedy support with producing new day beds for the prestigious Lawn Dorms along with more than 1,250 typical dorm mattresses - Great Job, folks!

Now that students are resting on our mattresses, we also get to rest, right? Nope. Now it is time to start a mattress production run for the Navy!)

We are also in the midst of standing up a new Contract Management Services (CMS) Team in northern Virginia to support the Defense Health Agency (DHA). This is great work and we appreciate the opportunity to serve those who serve us. Our federal Customer Service Team will also settle into new surroundings soon as they move from Portsmouth to the Tidewater Region Office of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). DEQ is welcoming us with open arms and we hope to leverage their passion and leadership over green products to promote our re-certified fire extinguishers (which save you 40% on average) and our LED lights that will cut your energy consumption and maintenance demands dramatically.

Please remember that while we proudly produce more than 200 types of high-quality writing instruments, "VIB is so much more than pens."


Take care,
