What U.S. city did Kuka Sleep select for its new mega mattress factory?

DALLAS – In a strategic move designed to continue supplying its U.S. customers with its lineup of mattresses, Kuka Sleep will be opening a new 504,500-square-foot factory here this week.

The new factory located on Mountain Creek Parkway will open as an assembly plant for mattresses being sold in the U.S. market. The company, which acquired 90 acres in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, in 2022 to build four facilities to make mattresses and upholstery, had plans for a U.S. factory as part of its long-term strategy. The company said it opted to speed up the factory’s opening in light of the latest antidumping petition that includes Mexico.

Last year’s third antidumping petition filed by a 10 domestic mattress and foam producers included Mexico in its list of 13 countries. The U.S. International trade Commission is expected to issue proposed duties in February.

“This facility symbolizes a substantial investment and our commitment to technology and craftsmanship,” said Leo Liu, president at Kuka Sleep, a division of Kuka Home. “It empowers us to enhance the benchmarks of comfort and quality within the sleep industry,”

Designed with 40-foot-high ceilings for warehousing purposes, the factory will assemble mattresses with materials from Kuka Sleep’s other factories.

The expansion to Dallas is part of the company’s growth in the category, and the company said it also reinforces its pledge to support local economies and provide job opportunities within the community.

“We are excited to celebrate the grand opening of our new factory in Dallas, where we will continue our legacy of delivering premium custom sleep solutions tailored to the unique needs of our customers,” said Michael Carter, executive vice president at Kuka Sleep.

The company is hosting an open house and grand opening event Wednesday, Jan. 24, at the facility.
