Pacific Coast Feather buys N.C. plant
March 4, 2009,
Seattle – Down and down alternative basic bedding producer Pacific Coast Feather Company has recently completed the purchase of a production and distribution facility in Henderson, N.C.
“Consolidating our Henderson operations into one facility enables us to realize significant cost savings along with operating efficiencies,” said Eric Moen, president and ceo.
It also positions PCFC for future growth and improved productivity in the manufacture and distribution of natural and synthetic fill pillows, comforters, featherbeds and fiber beds. The company’s 275 employees in Henderson will all transition to the new facility this summer.
The company made the purchase without tapping any external financing, according to Moen. Despite the recession, PCFC feels it is in a position to invest in the future, he said.
Pacific Coast Feather Company also operates manufacturing and distribution facilities in Kent and Marysville, Wash.; Maquoketa, Iowa; Lebanon, Pa.; Pico Rivera, Calif.; Wayne, Neb.; and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
