In response to ongoing customer requests to provide onshoring and nearshoring resources for freight-sensitive bedding products, Standard Fiber has built a new filling facility and distribution center in Henderson, Nevada, less than 20 miles from the company’s new showroom, which opened last month in the Las Vegas Market Center.
Standard Fiber’s 126,000-square-foot facility is equipped with the latest manufacturing equipment, providing high-speed, digitally controlled blending capabilities of up to three ingredients across different types of polyester and foam. The new facility will focus on filling and distributing higher-end blown polyester and foam-filled pet beds and sleep pillows, as well as maternity and other specialty shaped pillows.
“Our number one priority is the success of our customers, who depend upon our innovative products, lower costs and faster fulfillment to optimize their inventories,” said Sandy Gray, chief executive officer. “We recognized that many of our customers have challenges with relying solely on Asian manufacturing for their bulkier filled bedding production. So we’re thrilled to bring the next expansion of our global textile manufacturing network home to the United States for our partners who will benefit from our new localized capabilities.”
The new facility is strategically located to serve the large Las Vegas-based hospitality market where customers can benefit from local production and speedier product delivery.
The Burlingame, California-based company also emphasized its ability to collaborate with industry partners who only have East Coast-based filling operations. Now these customers are able to optimize time and cost-savings benefits by leveraging Standard Fiber’s new West Coast fulfillment capabilities.
