The Corsicana Mattress leadership team and employees joined with state, local and area business and industry leaders to break ground on the company’s new 376,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing center in its hometown of Corsicana, Texas.
The facility will feature state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment, corporate headquarters, a comprehensive training center, a product showroom and the company’s signature product innovation lab.
The new factory will consolidate two older plants in Corsicana under one roof with a larger, more efficient footprint. Once opened, the company’s employment in Corsicana will increase to 350. 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.
“We have seen significant growth both in our branded products and in our private-label business over the last year,” said Michael Thompson, chief executive officer of Corsicana Mattress. “Having our entire team under one roof will allow us to continue to fulfill the growing demand for domestic-made mattresses, crafted by American workers. Our roots run deep in Texas, and they always will. We at Corsicana are very excited to begin.”
The facility will include Corsicana’s first branded showroom, which will be open to the public, as well as current employees.
Corsicana will manufacture products for all five of its signature brands -— American Bedding, Early Bird, NightsBridge, Renue and Sleep Inc. — as well as private-label, contract and hospitality lines in the new facility.
“I’m excited about the connectivity and efficient collaboration that will become possible by bringing all business, manufacturing and employees under one roof,” said James Booth, chief operating officer. “We will continue to build the necessary synergies to continue our growth and expansion as a leader in the bedding industry. I’m also thankful to our leadership team and employees for making our new facility possible, as well as to the local and state government officials.”
