Mattress maker Tempur Sealy International Inc. plans to open a manufacturing and distribution facility in Plainfield, creating up to 300 jobs by the end of 2015, the Lexington, Kentucky-based company announced Thursday afternoon.
The 600,000-square-foot leased facility, at 9597 E. County Road 200 S., is expected to be fully operational by early 2015. It will handle manufacturing and distribution for the Tempur Sealy brands in addition to being a distribution center for Tempur-Pedic.
Officials said it will be Tempur Sealy’s first combination assembly and distribution center.
Tempur Sealy, which employs about 6,500 people worldwide, plans to begin accepting applications for nearly 200 manufacturing, office and supervisory positions in October.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. offered Sealy Mattress Manufacturing Co. up to $2.8 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the job-creation plans.
Tempur Sealy is the world's largest bedding provider. Its brands include Tempur, Tempur-Pedic, Sealy, Sealy Posturepedic, Optimum and Stearns & Foster.
The company had sales of $715 million in the second quarter.
