CT Nassau To Expand Burlington, N.C., Facility
CT Nassau — an Alamance, N.C.-based producer of mattress tape and mattress ticking fabric — is investing more than $4 million to expand its Burlington, N.C., mattress ticking manufacturing plant. The company reports increased demand for its mattress ticking fabric.
Approximately $1.5 million of the investment will go toward adding 37,500 square feet (ft2) to the existing 41,500-ft2 plant. CT Nassau already has invested $1.8 million in machinery to fulfill additional capacity, and expects to add additional equipment worth some $750,000 in 2014. The company also added 10 employees over the past 18 months.
“We are very excited about the opportunities this expansion presents,” said Carl Carpenter, vice president of manufacturing, CT Nassau. “It will allow us to be more adequately equipped to respond to market demands and react to our customer’s needs.”
Founded in 1991, CT Nassau operates a 75,000-ft2 mattress tape plant in Alamance that produces approximately 6 million yards of mattress tape a week, in addition to its Burlington plant, which currently produces more than 80,000 yards of mattress fabrics a week. The company employs 110 people at the plants.
