American Textile Company, a leading provider of innovative sleep solutions since 1925, will expand its operations with the addition of new facilities in Dallas, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah.
According to company officials, the new facilities add capacity and distribution capabilities to support increasing demand for American Textile Company products sold under bedding brands including AllerEase and Sealy.
The company expects to bring 50 new jobs to Dallas and Salt Lake City over the next few years. The new Dallas facility provides nearly twice the amount of space and capacity as the former Dallas location. The new Salt Lake City facility increases space and capacity by approximately 70 percent.
“There are two major trends driving this expansion,” said Lance Ruttenberg, American Textile Company President/CEO. “First, we’ve seen continuous growth in our business over the last decade. Second, we need to get products to our customers and end consumers with increasing speed, which requires ongoing investment in our supply chain. We are strategically expanding operations to meet these demands, building upon previous facility expansions across North America, Asia and Central America.”
“Adding facilities of this scale will have a long-term, positive impact on the manufacturing economies of Dallas and Salt Lake City,” said Ruttenberg. “It also enhances our ability to service our customers and manage inventory through peak seasons, while reducing shipping times and distance.”
