Spain-Based Fluvitex Plans Columbus, Ohio, Plant

08/01/2017
Fluvitex, a Spain-based global leader in textile development, plans to open its first United States production facility in metro Columbus, Ohio. The company will create 80 new jobs.

Through its American subsidiary Fluvitex USA, Inc., Fluvitex will invest a total of $8 million in machinery and equipment. Total investment will reach $12 million, including civil works, inventories and IT infrastructure.

The new 123,588-square-foot facility will be located in Groveport on 6500 Pontius Road, where the company will produce bedding textiles that include comforters, pillows and cushions.

“The Columbus Region provides the cost-effective business climate and high-skilled workforce we need as we enter into the U.S.,” said Jaume Burgell, General Manager, Fluvitex. “Groveport’s strategic access to the U.S. market will enable easy movement of goods and U.S. expansion.”

“Fluvitex’s decision to set down roots in Groveport continues to validate the Columbus Region’s position as a leader in manufacturing,” said Jeff Green, Finance Director and Assistant City Administrator, City of Groveport. “Adding a new manufacturer will further diversify the local economy and provide quality jobs for our residents.”
