PLAINFIELD, Ind. - State officials say mattress maker Tempur Sealy International Inc. will locate a new manufacturing plant and distribution facility near Plainfield, creating up to 300 new jobs by 2015.
The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says the Lexington, Kentucky-based company will open a 600,000 square-foot leased facility that will be Tempur Sealy's first combination assembly and distribution center. It will manufacture and distribute the Tempur Sealy brands and distribute Tempur-Pedic products.
