Mattress Manufacturer, Culp Inc., Creates 129 Jobs In Rural Stokesdale, North Carolina

08/10/2012
Culp Inc., a manufacturer of mattress and upholstery fabrics, will invest more than $900,000 to expand its operations in Guilford County, Stokesdale, North Carolina, with estimates of creating 129 jobs.

Gov Bev Perdue said the project was made possible in part by a $82,560 grant from the One North Carolina Fund. The grant is contingent upon local matches. "It's great news when home-grown companies expand their operations here in North Carolina. Culp's decision to locate in Guilford County is a testament to our state's highly skilled workforce and top-notch business climate," said Perdue.

Culp, headquartered in High Point, North Carolina, is a manufacturer of upholstery fabrics for furniture and mattress fabrics for bedding. The company operates as Culp Home Fashions and Culp Upholstery Fabrics. Culp currently employs more than 410 people at facilities in Guilford and Alamance counties. Its Stokesdale facility is located north of Winston-Salem and Greensboro, North Carolina.

"We are excited about the continued growth in our mattress fabric business and opportunity to expand this platform with further vertical integration into the cut and sew business," said Iv Culp, President of Culp's mattress fabrics division. "This new operation will allow us to respond to industry demands and increase the level of service we provide for our customers."
