Serta Simmons Bedding Opens Seattle, Washington, Plant
The plant, located in Puyallup, occupies 280,000 square feet, employs approximately 210 people, and produces around 1,000 mattresses per day. Products assembled in the Seattle facility are shipped throughout the Western US region and in other markets as needed. It is also the fourth facility to open as part of SSB's $100 million investment to expand its manufacturing footprint and support increased consumer demand.
"We are excited to open a new, larger manufacturing facility in Seattle, a city that is a known incubator for game-changing innovation in the US," said Michael Traub, CEO of Serta Simmons Bedding. "This new site allows us to bring together employees from our former Seattle-Beautyrest factory and Puyallup-Serta factory under one roof and will help meet demand from customers across North America."
Over the past year, SSB has also opened new, larger plants in Houston, Texas, Moreno Valley, Calif. and Windsor Locks, Conn. SSB also plans to relocate to new corporate headquarters in Doraville, Ga., in early 2019. The move to Doraville will bring approximately 500 Serta, Beautyrest and SSB corporate employees together under one roof for the first time.
