Crawfordsville has been selected as the site for Tempur Sealy’s third domestic foam-pouring plant. The new plant is expected to be the largest Tempur Sealy manufacturing facility in the world and will be located here in Montgomery County. While the details are still subject to closing conditions, construction on the 130-acre site is slated to begin in a few months.
Tempur Sealy is a leading manufacturer of bedding products and components including recognizable Tempur-Pedic®, Sealy® and Stearns & Foster® and non-branded private label and OEM products.
This new facility’s location in Crawfordsville is part of Tempur Sealy’s plan to better service Northeast US customers. The first phase of construction is planned for approximately 700,000 square feet, with the ability to double its capacity over time and to expand to a final size of approximately 1 million square feet in the future. These expansion phases will make the site Tempur Sealy’s largest manufacturing facility in the world. Production is expected to begin in 2023, and Tempur Sealy plans to hire approximately 300 local employees to staff the facility. Construction will be funded from operating cash flow.
Tempur Sealy Chairman and CEO Scott Thompson commented, “After a thorough site search and evaluation process, we have identified Crawfordsville, Indiana as the ideal location for our new operations. We selected this location based on the robust business climate fostered by the state and local government, the quality of life the city of Crawfordsville provides its citizens and the property’s access to major transportation routes.”
The announcement of a nationally-recognized manufacturer’s new location in Crawfordsville is exciting news for the county. The facility will bring new job opportunities from the construction phase through operation, and help further draw the interest of site-selectors of great companies to continue economic growth throughout our area.
