Texas Pocket Springs broke ground on a new facility adjacent to its existing plant and headquarters in Keene, Texas. The company said the new structure will allow it to keep pace with growing demand for its innovative products.
The new site adds 40,000 square feet of production space, giving the company combined square footage of about 115,000 square feet. New machinery and optimizations at both facilities will give the company five times its current production capacity, Sales Director Matan Wolfson said.
The second plant will have annual output of up to 1.3 million units of the company’s signature product — patented, glueless QuadCoils. It also allows the company to expand its innovation lab and its machinery division. In addition to spring units, Texas Pocket Springs produces and sells the GlueLess Innerspring Assembler. Demand for the machine is growing rapidly, especially in Europe, the company said, and the new plant will reduce lead times from six months to 60 days. The increased space also will allow the company to expand its ongoing work developing effective mattress recycling equipment.
“We’ve spent the last 25 years developing one of the best pocketed spring units in the industry,” said President Martin Wolfson. “We’re not the biggest in the industry, but we stay ahead of the curve with constant innovation and never being afraid to question conventional wisdom in the name of efficiency, quality, comfort and environmental friendliness. Fortunately, with the great team we have and the incredibly loyal customer base that we’ve built over the years, we’ve reached a point where we need a larger facility to keep up with the demand for our innerspring units.”
Matan Wolfson added: “We strive to be one of the most stable units on the market. As the cost of foam has increased, we’ve experienced an increase in orders for our microcoils, which mimic the feel of foam. We work with our customers on every new mattress design to develop the perfect innerspring unit. Our expanded innovation lab will help in this process. Our goal is simple: When people buy a mattress, we want them to request the mattress with Texas Pocket Springs inside.”
The new facility is expected to be fully operational by August.
