Serta Simmons Bedding Opens Plant in Moreno Valley, California
According to company officials, the plant is the third of four facilities set to open as part of SSB's $100 million investment to expand its manufacturing footprint and support increased consumer demand for its two best-selling brands in the U.S., Serta and Beautyrest.
The plant occupies 533,000 square feet, employs approximately 350 people, and will produce more than 1,500 mattresses per day. Products assembled in the Moreno Valley facility will be shipped throughout the Western U.S., with orders fulfilled in generally less than 72 hours.
"Serta Simmons Bedding has been a part of the Moreno Valley community for more than 12 years, and, with the opening of this new facility today, we look forward to being here for many more," said Michael Traub, CEO of Serta Simmons Bedding.
"This new facility, which is more than double the size of our previous one, and includes new technology and a larger workforce, will better position Serta Simmons Bedding to meet demand for our best-selling brands,” he added. The firm will also relocate to new corporate headquarters in Doraville, Georgia, by early 2019. The move to Doraville will bring approximately 500 Serta, Beautyrest and SSB corporate employees together under one roof for the first time, company officials said.
SSB also plans to open a new plant in Seattle, Washington, later this year. In addition to Moreno Valley, SSB has recently opened new, larger plants in Houston, Texas, and Windsor Locks, Connecticut.
