American Textile Adds Tifton Facility: Doubles Distribution Capacity
Innovative sleep solutions provider American Textile Company has officially opened its 400,000-square-foot state-of-the-art warehousing and distribution facility in Tifton, Ga.
The expansion marks the manufacturer’s ability to double its distribution capacity.
The textile maker has grown over 10 percent annually for the last 10 years, driven by increased consumer demand for its innovative technologies and brands, including AllerEase, Sealy and Tempur-Pedic bedding.
The company’s expanding e-commerce business has been a key contributor, growing an impressive 50 percent year-over-year.
American Textile Company growth has also created job opportunities. The company has embraced talent development and training future workers in the communities in which it operates through contributions to scholarship and skills development programs like the Pittsburgh Promise and the Tifton College & Career Academy. The Tifton opening event concluded with a $35,000 grant to the Tifton College & Career Academy.
