Specialty sleep products maker Comfort Revolution, which is headquartered in West Long Branch, N.J., is opening a manufacturing plant in Belmont, Miss., at the 432,650-square-foot facility formerly occupied by Schnadig Furniture Corp.
The plant will create 200 jobs within the next three years, according to a news release from the Mississippi Development Authority.
“We’ve wanted for a long time to produce products in the United States, and we’re eager to get started,” said Michael Fux, Comfort Revolution founder and chief executive officer. “We looked at sites throughout the Southeast for the new plant but were most impressed with Belmont.”
Comfort Revolution received incentives from the State of Mississippi Community Development Block Grant program, as well as from Tishomingo County, where the new plant is located.
Comfort Revolution, founded in 2011, offers mattresses, toppers and pillows that combine memory foam with the company’s Hydraluxe gel technology. Sealy bought a noncontrolling interest in the company earlier this year and Comfort Revolution will start making Sealy-branded products in 2013.
