American Textile To Open Tifton, Ga, Facility, Add 50 Jobs

Duquesne, Pa.-based American Textile Co. (ATC) — a supplier of mattress and pillow protectors, bed pillows and mattress pads — is opening a 218,000-square-foot state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facility in Tifton, Ga., to serve the Southeast. The facility, which initially will manufacture bed pillows, will employ 50 people and begin operations by the end of the first quarter of 2011. The company expects to add 70 more jobs at the facility by the end of 2016.

"The opening of the Tifton facility completes our strategic nationwide pillow distribution strategy," said John Riccio, CFO, ATC. "With pillow manufacturing facilities in Duquesne, Pa.; Salt Lake City, Utah; Dallas, Texas; and now Tifton, Ga., we can efficiently ship bed pillows across the United States and Canada. We are thrilled with our interaction at the state and local level that executed this plan in a short period of time."
