ATC Expands Product Line, Workforce

Duquesne, Pa.-based American Textile Co. (ATC) — a manufacturer of mattress and pillow protectors, bed pillows and mattress pads — has expanded its product offerings and its workforce. ATC projects 2008 sales will be 30-percent higher than 2007 sales, noting its pillow business alone has nearly doubled in the past year.

“The significant growth we are experiencing at American Textile Company is being driven by our ability to anticipate market needs and provide value-based solution offerings to our customers and consumers,” said Jennifer Katz, vice president of marketing communications, ATC. “This past year we challenged ourselves to not only identify needs through a deep understanding of the marketplace, but to answer those needs with innovative solutions rooted in science.”

ATC has expanded its flagship Aller-Ease® product line targeted to allergy and asthma sufferers; added 315 jobs at its three facilities in Duquesne, Dallas and Salt Lake City — the latter of which has grown by more than 50 percent; and promoted several employees in its operations, sales and marketing, and finance departments. Katz stated the company anticipates nearly 20-percent additional growth in 2009.
