Staff Staff -- Furniture Today, September 1, 2011
Waterford, N.Y. - Utility bedding manufacturer Soft-Tex is expanding its production facility here by 40,000 square feet.
"Customer demand remains strong and we want to ensure we are able to meet future needs," said Arthur Perry, president.
The additional space will be used as Soft-Tex's main distribution and sort point. The company has been working with a recycling group to recycle 90-95% of its waste.
"We have always been driven to use an eco-friendly manufacture process, and this cooperation will complete the cycle for us," said Perry.
In June the company added an office in Shanghai to assist in its import operations. It has also opened a new distribution facility on the west coast. U.S. sales and marketing staffs have also been expanded, the company said.
Soft-Tex brands include Therapedic, Natures Rest, Sona, Health Guard, and Sensorpedic Memory Foam.
