Arizona is one of the most competitive areas in all of the US as there are several great value manufacturers that are located there.
Three of these are members of this site that I have come to know and trust through many conversations. While they may not have fancy showrooms … they use quality materials in their mattress, actually have a factory behind them, and have exceptional value. They all compete well with the best in the industry in terms of their quality, value, service, and transparency. …
https://www.mattresses.net/ Phoenix. Ken (the owner) and Greg here are both very knowledgeable and Helpful.
https://www.sleepez.com/ Tempe. Shawn (the owner) and the other staff here are also very knowledgeable and helpful here.
Both of these manufacturers specialize in customized latex mattresses which have various combinations of layering options but also have other types of mattresses as well that are available locally that are not shown on their websites or shipped across the country. They have many years of experience in the industry and offer some very high quality and value customized mattresses and for those that are fortunate enough to live locally they have a local showroom/factory where their local customers can test their mattresses.
Those that live in Phoenix are fortunate to have quite a few manufacturing members of the site available locally and to be able to try in person what most people have to purchase online.
I have also talked with or know about several other manufacturers in the area that may also be worth considering.
Brooklyn Bedding a company based in Phoenix. They sell a “simplified choice” mattress site and make latex hybrid, memory foam, and other mattresses through their Dreamfoam sister site. They have a factory showroom in Phoenix where you can test their mattresses locally as long as you make an appointment first and a mall store in Gilbert where you can test a few of their most popular mattresses. They also own R&S bedding which is a line of retail stores mainly in the Phoenix and Tucson areas (and a couple in the Salt Lake City area as well) which sells mattresses which include a range of latex, memory foam, and pocket coil mattresses which are the ones I would focus on if you go here (and not the Serta mattresses they also carry).
https://www.tuftandneedle.com/ They make a 10" polyfoam mattress that uses good quality materials (1.8 lb polyfoam base layer and a high performance 2.9 lb polyfoam comfort layer) and is a good quality and value choice in its budget range. They are normally only available online but for those in the area you can call them to make an appointment at their local Phoenix 2nd floor showroom where you can test their mattress in person.
http://www.latexpedic.com/ Factory direct manufacturer in Phoenix. They make a line of two sided latex mattresses and a two sided pocket coil/latex hybrid that are good quality/value.
a1mattressinc.com/ or http://www.organicsleepsystems.com/ in Tucson. I talked with the niece of the owner here (who is not in the store a lot). She said she would pass on a message for him to call me after I tried several times but this didn’t happen. They manufacture their own mattresses including latex but also have what she called their “bring in mattress line” made by Natura which are good quality and have a wide variety of models of latex and latex hybrids but are quite expensive and don’t have the same value as their own brand or other factory direct manufacturers.

https://www.mattressfactoryinc.com/ Factory direct manufacturer in Phoenix. Have been making mattresses for about 20 years and make innersprings, latex, and memory foam including Talalay. Primarily sells to retail stores but also has a showroom and will sell factory direct.
https://www.manta.com/c/mm3vnck/springpedic-mattress-factory Manufacturer in Tucson. I have talked with Jesus here and they make mostly low budget promotional mattresses. They will also make a memory foam mattress with 5.5 lb memory foam and while they mostly sell lower cost mattresses to local retail outlets … they do have a showroom and sill sell direct. No latex. Mainly of interest to those who are looking for mattresses in a very low budget range.
https://www.manta.com/c/mm82m2j/desert- Factory direct manufacturer in Glendale. Has been around for a long time and has gotten smaller as he gets older but won’t give up on his values. Uses higher quality polyfoam than mainstream manufacturers such as 1.5 and 1.8 polyfoam and even HR in his bases. Good value for lower budget innerspring mattresses.
http://qualitybeddinginc.com/index.html Manufacturer in Phoenix, AZ, They make mainly innerspring/polyfoam mattresses although a few of them include a small amount of latex and one of them has a microcoil comfort layer as well. I haven’t talked with them and I don’t know the quality of the polyfoam they are using or if they will provide this information to their customers.
http://www.arizonaorganicmattresses.com/index.html Phoenix, AZ. They sell OMI (Organicpedic) and Savvy Rest latex mattresses which are both high quality mattresses that use high quality materials (including organic latex) but they are also in a more premium price range than other similar latex mattresses that are available in the area so I would make some careful value comparisons if you visit them.
https://www.sherwoodbedding.com/ They are a regional wholesale manufacturer based in Phoenix who manufactures mostly innerspring with memory foam or latex mattresses. They only sell through retail outlets in several states but the closest ones to you are in Phoenix. They have “better than average” value but are not in the same value range as the factory direct manufacturers that are close to you.
Hopefully this will help … even though most of the manufacturing is happening in Phoenix.
PS: Just to clarify as well since my online name is the same as the city where several members and non members are manufacturing mattresses and several members have asked me … my name is from the mythical firebird “Phoenix” and is an online name I have used for many years long before The Mattress Underground. It always seemed strange to me that it also happens to be a city where there is a lot of good value mattress manufacturing :).
