CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – Bedding leader Tempur Sealy International officially marked the opening of its new $138 million foam-pouring facility – the company’s largest factory – here this week.
The company broke ground on the 700,000-square-foot facility northwest of Indianapolis two years ago. This is Tempur Sealy’s third domestic foam pouring plant. It sits on 200 acres giving the company the ability to double capacity over time and expand to about 1 million square feet.
Production began earlier this year, and the company plans to hire about 300 as operations ramp up.
“This facility underpins our commitment to expanding our global manufacturing footprint to fulfill the projected long-term demand trajectory for our industry-leading products and to support our growth initiatives,” said Scott Thompson, chairman and CEO. “This facility has the capability to manufacture a wide variety of bedding products and components for branded and non-branded operations, including Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Stearns & Foster and OEM mattresses. Today’s ribbon-cutting ceremony is not only a celebration of our new facility, but also a testament to our enduring belief in the potential of Indiana. The decision to invest in this state reflects our confidence in the talent, resources and business-friendly environment that Indiana officer. We firmly believe that the future holds immense opportunities for growth in this region.”
More than 100 people attended the company’s ceremonial ribbon cutting and open house.
As part of the event, the company announced a $500,000 grant from the Tempur Sealy Foundation to the Montgomery County Early Learning Center in 2022, and has already donated mattresses to local nonprofit organization, including Habitat for Humanity, Montgomery County Women’s Shelter, Montgomery County Rehabilitation and Drug Court Program, Wabash College Financial Aid/Scholarship Program, Crawfordsville Animal Shelter and the Crawfordsville Fire Department.
