American Textile Company Expands Warehousing-Distribution With Tifton, Georgia Facility

02/24/2017
American Textile Company, a bedding manufacturer, is expanding its U.S. operations with a new, state-of-the-art warehousing and distribution facility under construction in Tifton, Georgia. The facility will be 96 miles south of Macon and 43.8 miles north of Valdosta along I-75.

The new facility, slated to open later this year as the first tenant in the new Tifton-Tift County Chamber of Commerce Industrial Park, will more-than double shipping capacity to keep up with growing customer demand in both traditional retail and e-commerce sectors.

The expansion comes on the heels of a high-growth year for American Textile Company in which the company increased capacity at its Dallas, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah locations.

“Demand for sleep products has climbed steadily over the past decade, but what’s shifted even more rapidly is the growth in e-commerce sales, which drove over 40 percent of all retail sales growth in 2016,” said Lance Ruttenberg, American Textile Company President & CEO.

“We have strategically expanded our physical footprint and logistics capabilities to keep pace with the on-demand, online economy that requires new capabilities, while also expanding infrastructure to support the significant growth in our traditional retail channels,” he said.
