Corsicana to Close Richmond Plant
Furniture World News Desk on
As part of its strategy of re-examining the effectiveness and efficiency of its national manufacturing and distribution footprint, Corsicana Mattress Company said it will close its Symbol mattress production plant at 2001 Bellwood Road in August. Production will be absorbed into the company’s Newington, CT and Greensboro, NC facilities, and will impact 54 plant employees.
“This consolidation is necessary to continue streamlining our manufacturing footprint, to drive efficiencies and effectiveness. Our Newington and Greensboro plants have the expertise and capacity to effectively service our customers in the mid-Atlantic region,” said Corsicana Mattress CEO Eric Rhea. “We are grateful to the local community and employees for their support and expect a smooth transition.”
The announcement comes one month after Corsicana announced the closure of its LaPorte, IN facility.
“This consolidation, along with the recent LaPorte closure, is another necessary step in our drive to return as the industry’s leader in value-priced bedding,” he added.
The 75,000-square-foot Richmond plant became a part of Corsicana in April of 2021 when the company acquired Symbol.
