ARIZONA – U.S.-based mattress manufacturer and retailer Brooklyn Bedding broke ground on a new state-of-the art manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters in Glendale, Arizona.
The 648,165-square-foot building will allow the company to increase its workforce up to 150 people in the next two years. Currently, Brooklyn Bedding has 250 employees. The new manufacturing facility and corporate headquarters will merge the capacity of both the company’s current factory and warehouse. The plan entails an investment of more than US$72 million to make Brooklyn Bedding nearly fully vertically integrated.
“Brooklyn Bedding has come a long way from the early days of selling overstock mattresses to now be in a position to triple mattress production,” said John Merwin, owner and CEO of Brooklyn Bedding. “Over the years, I’ve been asked to define our journey as an American-made brand.
Pending completion of the new construction, Brooklyn Bedding will continue operations at its current manufacturing facility in Phoenix.
