Soft-Tex International, a leading producer of bedding and home comfort products, has established a facility in Sugar Land, Texas which will improve shipping efficiency and double the company’s production capacity for fibre-filled products. The facility will begin immediate warehousing and distribution operations and also add new jobs over the course of 2021.

In the first half of 2020, Soft-Tex had announced an expansion doubling capacity and set an aggressive target of continued domestic expansion by at least 20 per cent per year for the next five years. The ramp up of the new facility will double the total of domestic capacity, far exceeding the annual growth target.

The Sugar Land facility will begin immediate warehousing and distribution operations which will improve overall shipping efficiency to both retailer warehouse networks and direct-to-consumer shipments with 3-day or better ground service coverage, as Soft-Tex scales inventory balancing. Soft-Tex will also add new production equipment for fibre-filled products and personnel in Sugar Land to begin manufacturing at the facility by June 1, 2021.

Soft-Tex principal, Mark Smiderle, remarked on the opening of the Sugar Land and the company’s commitment to domestic supply chains noting, “As promised, Soft-Tex has delivered and now continues to expand upon its commitment to growing its domestic footprint. These efforts will continue to improve Soft-Tex’s, and in turn, our partners’ overall service quality, speed, and costs, which we recognise is critical to driving continued growth.”

As offshore sourcing volatility continues in the ever-changing geopolitical landscape exacerbated by the continued pandemic, Soft-Tex has launched initiatives to shift volume for many other bedding product categories back to domestic and/or nearshore supply chains through investing in fabric and ticking partnerships and the planned launch of domestic foam pouring.
