New Jersey-based Comfort Revolution, developer of high-end sleep products, will locate its manufacturing operations to a 432,650-square-foot building in Belmont, Mississippi, creating an estimated 200 jobs in the next two years.
The company will locate into a building formerly occupied by Schnadig Furniture Corporation in the Tishomingo County, northeast of Tupelo near the Alabama County line.
"We looked at sites throughout the southeast for the new plant but were most impressed with Belmont," said Comfort Revolution Founder and CEO Michael Fux. "The outstanding quality of the workforce in Tishomingo County and the community's support made us conclude this is the best spot for our investment. We've wanted for a long time to produce products in the United States, and we're eager to get started."
"This is a great day for Belmont and Tishomingo County, and I am grateful for the 200 jobs being created by Comfort Revolution," Governor Phil Bryant said. "The decision to locate these manufacturing operations in Mississippi is further testament to the fact that our state is a great place to do business, and I look forward to watching Comfort Revolution grow in Tishomingo County in the coming years."
As an incentive, Mississippi Development Authority provided assistance in support of the project through the Community Development Block Grant program. Tishomingo County also provided tax incentives to attract the firm.
"Comfort Revolution's decision to locate in Belmont is great news not only for the local community, but for the entire state of Mississippi. I thank the company for its investment in our state and especially for creating 200 new job opportunities for our workforce," said MDA Executive Director Brent Christensen. "I am grateful to our partners in Tishomingo County for working so hard to bring Comfort Revolution to Mississippi."
