Pittsburgh-based bedding manufacturer American Textile Company is opening a new distribution centre near its headquarters. The 98,000 square-foot facility in McKeesport will serve customers throughout the northeast. The company has also appointed Traci Hayes as vice president of its e-commerce business to drive new initiatives in the high growth segment.

These efforts come on the heels of the company's addition of innovative sleep brands Sealy and Tempur-Pedic to its portfolio, and two years of rapid increases in its e-commerce sales. The McKeesport facility marks American Textile Company's sixth domestic distribution facility and will increase its capacity by more than 50 per cent in the region. The textile maker expects to bring more than 75 jobs to the region over the next five years.

"Conversations around sleep are more prevalent today than ever before and the category continues to grow," said Lance Ruttenberg, American Textile Company president and CEO. "Consumers are looking for new ways to foster a good night's rest and our products help them achieve it. Our e-commerce business is thriving from the increased demand and we're expanding to meet those needs."

Recent hire Hayes brings more than 20 years of e-commerce experience to American Textile Company, where she oversees all online sales and marketing efforts. Prior to this role, Hayes spent more than six years leading the e-commerce business for DICK's Sporting Goods. She holds a Master of Business Administration degree and a Bachelor of Computer Information Systems and Management degree from Robert Morris University. (SV)
