Sleep products producer Comfort Revolution will officially open its nearly half-million square-foot Belmont plant in Tishomingo County Monday with a 10 a.m. grand opening ceremony.
West Long Branch, N.J.-based Comfort Revolution expects to employ about 200 workers over the next three years. The operation, housed in a renovated 432,650 square-foot building at 9 Industrial Park Drive, is the company’s first U.S. factory. The building is former Schnadig Furniture upholstery plant.
“We’ve wanted for a long time to produce products in the United States, and we’re eager to get started,” said Comfort Revolution founder and CEO Michael Fux in the company’s early September announcement of the Belmont plant..
It will feature modern equipment including robotic technology, officials said. The plant will make Comfort Revolution products, consisting of mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows using memory foam and the company’s Hydraluxe gel technology, as well as some Sealy-branded products.
Sealy became a partner with Comfort Revolution earlier this year, acquiring a non-controlling interest in the company, Furniture Today reports.
