BekaertDeslee, one of the largest manufacturer of mattress textiles and cover solutions, has announced a major expansion of its North American manufacturing facility in North Carolina. BekaertDeslee will be investing more than $4 million to add more than 80,000 square feet to its already existing 270,000 square feet manufacturing footprint.

Further investments are also being made in new state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and full time employees to support BekaertDeslee’s continuing growth.

Brandon Wells, general manager of BekaertDeslee North America said, “We are making this major investment to allow us to better service our growing customer base and the ongoing demand in this key North American market. We will be adding new knitting machinery and updated equipment to support our weaving operations along with another finishing frame and laminating machine.”

“We are very excited about these new additions to our North American business unit and looking forward to continuing our growth and expansion. Due to our ongoing success, we are in the process of expanding our workforce which will see 50 new employees added this year and bring our full time employee base to over 300. Our commitment to this market is deeply rooted in our long-term global strategy and presence,” he added.

BekaertDeslee’s global technical team has worked for over 12 months to develop the new manufacturing plan. (GK)
