Mattress Manufacturer Locating Factory, Adding 300 Jobs in Oklahoma

Mattress manufacturer Spring Air Company will invest $30 million to open a facility in Durant, Oklahoma, according to state commerce officials. Up to 300 new jobs are planned with the project, with 100 coming this year. The state-of-the-art production center, which will be the company's largest manufacturing facility in the United States, will be located in an empty 351,000-square-foot facility in the Durant Industrial Park and should be operational by this summer. "As our company continues to grow, we needed a state-of-the-art facility that would bring us closer to our customers in this region of the country," says Steve Cumbow, Spring Air's CEO, who also said the Florida-headquartered company chose Durant because of its access to major interstate highways. No information was released regarding financial incentives offered to the company.
