Serta Announces New Headquarters Plans
By Home Furnishings Business in on February 2006
A state-of-the-art 90,000-square-foot facility, located in the Chicago suburb of Hoffman Estates, Ill., will serve as the new home for Serta International, the mattress manufacturer announced this week.
With a construction start scheduled for this spring, Serta expects the new larger building -- which will replace its existing 17,000-square-foot headquarters -- to open in the summer of 2007.
According to Serta, the new facility will not only house the company's 110 corporate employees, but also include a cutting-edge showroom and a research center where new designs and components will be tested and evaluated.
"We are especially excited to be breaking ground on our new international headquarters right now because this year marks Serta's 75th anniversary – a year in which we are celebrating all that Serta has achieved since its founding in 1931," said Barbara Bradford, senior vice president of marketing for Serta International. "This new space also signals the next phase of Serta's global growth."
