King Koil to Move Headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona
Based in suburban Chicago for nearly 18 years, bedding producer King Koil has announced the relocation of its corporate offices to its manufacturing facility in greater Phoenix, Arizona by the end of the year.
The move will bring corporate executives closer to the daily operations of its plant, customers, and research and development team.
“This is an exciting time for our company as we experience strong growth and marketplace reception for all the changes we have made in the company over the past two years. The senior management team believes that our ability to be based at the epicenter of our manufacturing home will be of great benefit to our customers, employees and shareholders,” said David Binke, CEO. “The energy in Avondale is palpable and contagious as our team builds the King Koil brand and is something all of our people want to be closer to. It will be great having everything under one roof after this move.”
King Koil came to Chicago 18 years ago from Minneapolis. It opened its 90,000-square-foot Avondale, Arizona, facility in May of 2018. Since that time, newly hired executives have chosen to work from the plant, and its 27,000-square-foot Willowbrook headquarters team had transitioned from 24 to six employees. Of the remaining employees in Illinois, most will relocate to Arizona.
The Avondale plant serves retail partners in 17 states: Arizona, Arkansas, Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
In addition to manufacturing, the new facility houses offices for management and customer service, as well as a sophisticated audio-visual conference room that connects King Koil’s offices around the country for meetings. A 2,500-square-foot showroom is also located in the facility and provides presentation space for the company’s national product lines.
