Tornado strikes Pacific Coast Feather company plant
Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, October 8, 2013
Seattle -- Pacific Coast Feather Company's mattress pad manufacturing plant in Wayne, Ne., was directly struck by a class ef4 tornado early Friday evening. Fortunately, it was after operating hours and none of the 137 people employed at PCFC's Wayne facility were injured.
"Though the tornado did cause a lot of damage, we are most grateful that none of our employees were hurt." Said Joe Crawford, PCFC president and ceo. "Fortunately we have multiple options throughout our supply chain. While there will be some short-term disruption, we do not anticipate this being an issue beyond that."
The tornado destroyed much of the facility. PCFC is working with its domestic and international supply chain and customers to minimize interruptions to this season's needs.
Pacific Coast Feather Company is the global leader in the basic bedding industry. Pillows, comforters, mattress pads, feather beds and sheets from the company offer premium quality, comfort, support and durability. As a family-owned business, PCFC remains true to its heritage, following the uncompromising European traditions of craftsmanship established in 1884 by company founder, Joseph Hanauer.
