Facility Will Bring Company’s Operations Under One Roof, Improve Efficiencies
CORSICANA, Texas – Leading mattress manufacturer Corsicana Mattress is investing $22 million to establish a new 376,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing center on 26 acres in its hometown of Corsicana, Texas. The facility, scheduled to open in September, will include state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, corporate headquarters, a comprehensive training center, a product showroom and the company’s signature product innovation lab.
This is the second new factory the company has announced this year. The Texas announcement follows the company’s August announcement of its opening of a 165,000-square-foot factory in LaPorte, Indiana, dedicated to manufacturing Corsicana’s boxed beds.
“Our roots run deep in Texas, and it only makes sense that we invest in our business and our employees here,” said Michael Thompson, chief executive officer of Corsicana Mattress. “Our growth over the last three years has been significant, and this new facility, designed and built for our needs, will allow us to improve manufacturing efficiencies, as well as house our product testing lab and corporate teams in one location alongside production. Corsicana will mark its 50th anniversary in 2021, and what a great way to set the stage for another 50 years by opening this new, world-class facility in Corsicana where we got our start.”
Corsicana moved its headquarters from the town of Corsicana to Dallas in 2018.
The new factory will allow the company to consolidate two older plants in Corsicana under one roof with a larger, more efficient footprint. Once opened, the company’s employment in Texas will increase to 450. Located off Interstate 45, the freeway that connects the Texas Gulf Coast to Dallas, the facility will provide easy logistics for truck traffic and high visibility.
Corsicana will manufacture products for all of five of its signature brands – NightsBridge, Early Bird, Renue, American Bedding and Sleep Inc. – as well as private label, contract and hospitality lines in the new facility.
“By moving all of our Corsicana, Texas, operations under one roof instead of two, our production team will net improved, more seamless manufacturing processes,” said James Booth, chief operating officer for Corsicana Mattress. “The design of the larger, more modern facility will offer a more efficient workflow, allow us to build on our industry leading product innovation and facilitate our continued growth.”
