The ground has been broken on a new manufacturing facility in Crawfordsville, Indiana. The Tempur Sealy International plant, which will be 700,000 square feet and cost US$138 million to build, is expected to produce 300 employment by the end of 2025. It will be the company’s third foam pouring production factory in the United States and fourth in the globe, but it will also be the company’s largest. The plant, which sits on 130 acres of land, will improve the company’s capacity to service clients in the northeast, create a range of bedding goods and components, and have the potential for up to 1 million square feet of additional development.
“This facility is the bedrock of our commitment to increasing our worldwide production footprint to meet expected long-term demand for our industry-leading goods and support our expansion plans. We have chosen this city in Indiana as the perfect location for our future operations after a rigorous evaluation procedure and site search. We chose this location because of the favorable business climate fostered by both the local and federal governments, the high quality of life provided to city residents, and the property’s proximity to important transportation lines,” stated Scott Thompson, Chairman, and CEO of Tempur Sealy.
The factory will be able to produce components for both branded and unbranded products operations Tempur-Pedic, Stearns & Foster, Sealy, and OEM mattresses are among the bedding brands available. The company’s existing production presence in the Midwest will be supplemented by this new plant, which is intended to improve Tempur Sealy’s capacity to service its Northeast clients. The Indiana Economic Development Corporation will give Tempur Production USA LLC certain tax benefits pending approval (IEDC). The firm will be qualified for these tax credits once Hoosiers have been employed and investments have been made, thus they are performance-based.
