Mattress and pillow manufacturer Tempur-Pedic held a grand opening celebration Feb. 13 for its new $17 million world headquarters at 1000 Tempur Way in the Coldstream Research Campus in Lexington, Ky. Among the attendees were Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear and members of community organizations who supported the site development.
“Our new global headquarters was designed to provide an invigorating place to work filled with natural light and open spaces, and with a layout that encourages collaboration and team interaction,” said Mark Sarvary, Tempur-Pedic president and chief executive officer. “Now that we’ve lived in it for a few months I am delighted to say that it has delivered on all of this and more. As we moved from our old headquarters, we reflected on our history and the path that led Lexington-based Tempur-Pedic to become one of the largest global bedding companies. Tempur-Pedic has undeniably changed the industry, but the journey is far from complete and our new building symbolizes the next phase of our journey.”
The building was designed and built by Al Neyer Inc. with interior and workspace design by Champlain Architecture, both of Cincinnati. The modern, daylit structure incorporates many sustainable design elements.
According to a news release, the 128,000 square-foot building is designed to encourage people to think differently about their work environment, their interactions with colleagues, their role in the global nature of the business, their stewardship of resources and their own health and wellness.
