Pittsburgh-based bedding manufacturer American Textile Company will expand operations with a new distribution center in McKeesport, Pennsylvania.
The 98,000 square-foot facility near Pittsburgh is strategically located to serve customers throughout the northeast.
These efforts come on the heels of the company’s addition of innovative sleep brands Sealy and Tempur-Pedic to its portfolio, and two years of rapid increases in its e-commerce sales.
The McKeesport facility marks American Textile Company’s sixth domestic distribution facility and will increase its capacity by more than 50 percent in the region. The textile maker expects to bring more than 75 jobs to the region over the next five years.
“Conversations around sleep are more prevalent today than ever before and the category continues to grow,” said Lance Ruttenberg, American Textile Company President & CEO. “Consumers are looking for new ways to foster a good night’s rest and our products help them achieve it. Our e-commerce business is thriving from the increased demand and we’re expanding to meet those needs.”
