Tempur Sealy selects Indiana site for new manufacturing plant

LEXINGTON, Ky.Tempur Sealy International Inc. has announced plans to build its third domestic foam-pouring plant on a 130-acre site in Crawfordsville, Ind.

The first phase of construction is planned for approximately 700,000 s.f., with the ability to double capacity over time and expand to a final size of approximately 1 million s.f., which would make it the company’s largest manufacturing facility in the world.

Construction is expected to begin in the third quarter of 2021, with production commencing in 2023. The company plans to hire approximately 300 employees to staff the facility.

Tempur Sealy Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson said the facility will have the capability to manufacture a wide variety of bedding products and components for branded and nonbranded operations, including Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, and Stearns & Foster.

The Midwest location complements the company’s existing manufacturing footprint and is expected to enhance its ability to service its Northeast customers. The Indiana plant represents the latest in a string of new facilities for Tempur Sealy. A plant recently opened in Dallas, Texas, and new facilities will open in the Northeast and on the West Coast later this year.
