Corsicana Mattress Breaks Ground on New Texas Headquarters
State, local and area business and industry leaders joined the Corsicana Mattress leadership team and employees to break ground on its new 376,000-square-foot headquarters and manufacturing center on 26 acres in its hometown of Corsicana, Texas, from which the company was named.
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 allow the company to 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. 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,” said Michael Thompson, chief executive officer of Corsicana Mattress. “Our roots run deep in Texas, and they always will. We at Corsicana are very excited to begin this important milestone in our company’s history.”
In addition to manufacturing and internal business, Corsicana will also open its first branded showroom that will be open to the public as well as current employees. The new showroom will give consumers the opportunity to experience Corsicana’s collection of affordable, innovative sleep products while also sharing feedback on new products.
Corsicana will manufacture products for all of five of its signature brands – NightsBridge, Early Bird, Renue, American Bedding 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 of Corsicana Mattress. “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 who continue to support us within the community.”
