Aero Products International, Inc., located in suburban Chicago , is the leading innovator of premium, air-filled products under the AeroBed® and Aero® Sport brand names. As the leader, Aero continually strives to provide unique, innovative, air-filled products and accessories that have superior levels of convenience, comfort, durability, and style. The exclusive, patented pump and valve technologies allow for fast inflation and deflation. The wide range of products is designed for both indoor and outdoor use, making it easy to find the right product to fit your lifestyle.
The aero story began in 1992 when an innovative way to quickly inflate and deflate air mattresses was patented. After much research and development, the original AeroBed® was born, bringing the comfortable, adjustable, extra bed in a minute to consumers for the first time. The bed fully inflated in less than 60 seconds with the exclusive built-in pump and its patented quick release valve deflated the bed in 15 seconds. In addition, the product featured adjustable firmness and premium-quality construction. From 1992-1997, AeroBed sales were concentrated on TV home shopping programs and in mail-order catalogs. The unique product concept was well received by consumers but not available at retail during this time because the product sold best when demonstrated. The goal was to build the aero brand by educating consumers about “a whole new way to think about air.”
Since the success of its landmark product, Aero has introduced several new and equally innovative products. The Raised AeroBed was introduced in 2001 and features all the comfort and convenience of the AeroBed, but with the height of a regular bed. This unprecedented product created a whole new category of air-filled mattresses, and the infomercial won several awards.
In 2002, Aero Products improved and adapted its inflation technology, and introduced the New & Improved AeroBed. This new AeroBed inflated 30% faster and 20% firmer than the original AeroBed, and the new recessed pump design made the AeroBed even more versatile. Since the success of its landmark product, Aero Products further adapted its inflation technology and superior quality to a wide range of products.
