Thomasville adds footage

Thomasville, GA — Thomasville Home Furnishings this month will complete its second facility expansion in three years. The latest addition doubles the U.S. bedding, window and decorative pillow manufacturer's space, brining it to more than 100,000 square feet.

Although Thomasville imports some greige goods and finished fabric, it is one of the few home textiles companies that continue to manufacture product entirely in the United States. Sales last year grew 23 percent and this year are tracking up 15 percent, said Milt Mitler, vp.

The new facility expansion provides room from new automated cutting equipment that produces wide-width goods more efficiently, he said. Upgraded software systems keeps track of inventory levels, assigns cutting positions and tracks goods from order through shipment. The addition also includes new feed rails, comforter machinery and packaging equipment.
