Luxury mattress producer E.S. Kluft & Co., with headquarters in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., has signed a long-term lease for newly constructed manufacturing space in the Humboldt Industrial Park in Hazle Township, Pa. The 99,000-square-foot facility is expected to begin production in mid-October and employ 100 in the near term.
The company said it outgrew its facility in Denver, Pa., a former Park Place Corp. plant that it leased last year.
“High-quality retailers have asked us to grow our production capacity in the East Coast region,” said Earl Kluft, president and chief executive officer. “This new site will be a state-of-the-art production and distribution center that mirrors our West Coast facility, enabling us to produce our full line of products for the first time on the East Coast. Hazle Township is a great community with a wonderful workforce. We are excited about this new opportunity.”
Third-generation mattress maker Kluft founded E. S. Kluft & Co. in 2004. Its handcrafted mattresses include hand-tied coils, Belgian jersey knits and damask fabrics, New Zealand wool, natural Talalay latex, bio-based foams and natural, eco-friendly fibers.
