Zinus USA, Inc., an e-commerce mattress and furniture company and subsidiary of South Korea-based Zinus Inc., will invest $108 million to develop their first North American advanced manufacturing facility in McDonough, Georgia. The company plans to create 804 jobs in Henry County.
The advanced manufacturing facility will be located at the site of the former Toys R Us distribution center. The facility is expected to open in the first half of 2021, and will also serve as a U.S. distribution center for the company.
“As we continue to grow into new markets and expand our own vertical integration capabilities, establishing our first-ever production center in the U.S. is a critical step in our evolution as a global business,” said Keith Reynolds, president at Zinus U.S. “Georgia was a natural choice when considering the location for our new facility, and we’re proud to bring new jobs to the hardworking community in Henry County. Not only will this investment ensure we can better serve partners like Walmart, Amazon, Wayfair, and Costco, but it will allow us to continue delivering high-value products at affordable prices to our loyal customers for years to come.”
Through its investment, one of the largest in Georgia since the start of the new fiscal year, Zinus will bring hundreds of good paying advanced manufacturing jobs to the area, state officials said. The new manufacturing facility is expected to open in the first half of 2021, and will also serve as a U.S. distribution center for the company.
“We are delighted that Zinus has selected Henry County for their first U.S. advanced manufacturing facility. This partnership further demonstrates that Henry County is a destination for global commerce,” said Chair of the Henry County Board of Commissioners and member of GDEcD’s Board of Directors June Wood. “Henry County’s growing e-commerce presence contributed greatly to our success in attracting Zinus and other advanced manufacturers who sell their products through e-commerce marketplaces.”
“It’s a pleasure to welcome Zinus to Georgia today,” said Governor Brian P. Kemp. “I know this international company with a strong worldwide reach will feel right at home in Henry County. I appreciate their investment and the trust they’ve placed in hardworking Georgians, and I’m confident that, thanks to our unmatched logistics network and pro-business environment, their business will find new opportunities to succeed as they begin operations in McDonough.”
According to state officials, with over 40 years of experience in the home furnishings industry, Zinus has expanded to 20 countries across the globe and plans to continue growing their international footprint in the coming years. Zinus has several distribution centers across the U.S., but this marks the company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility. The company’s other manufacturing facilities are located in Indonesia and China. Renowned for their expertly engineered products, Zinus infuses natural ingredients including green tea, olive oil, and charcoal into their mattresses and home furniture.
