Executives at Latex International, the latex supplier and owner of the Pure LatexBLISS bed brand, reported that two weeks after a fire shut down manufacturing at a Shelton, Connecticut, production facility, all employees returned to work and production was at full capacity.
The official investigation into the fire is complete and an employee task force is working to fine-tune manufacturing, the company said.
“We have eased our way back into full production to assure that we don’t experience any further issues,” said David Fisher, Latex International president and chief executive officer. “I am pleased that the clean-up was executed quickly allowing us to return to business as usual with minimal disruption to our customers. We anticipate that in addition to fulfilling client orders, we will start making samples of the new Pure LatexBLISS products being featured at Las Vegas Market at the end of the month.”
