DUQUESNE, PA (PRWEB) September 20, 2016
Pittsburgh-based American Textile Company, a leading provider of innovative sleep solutions since 1925, today announced an expansion of operations with the addition of new facilities in Dallas, Texas and Salt Lake City, Utah. 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® found at retailers nationwide, as well as online.
“There are two major trends driving this expansion,” said Lance Ruttenberg, American Textile Company President and 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.”
American Textile Company employs over 1,000 people worldwide and 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.
“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.”
The growing demand for innovative and specialized sleep solutions is a key component of American Textile Company’s growth and will be on display at the New York Home & Textiles Market in New York City from September 19 - 22.
