Brentwood expands Mississippi operations by 15%

Acquires new structure, adds new equipment

Carson, Calif. – Brentwood Originals is expanding its footprint to make room for more production.

The dec pillows and accessories producer is acquiring a 60,000-square-foot manufacturing building to supplement its existing 400,000-square-foot facility in Mississippi.

President and ceo Loren Sweet told H&TT that the company expects to occupy the new space soon and will begin production on site immediately thereafter.

“Strong growth within the indoor and outdoor categories has led to capacity constraints which results in our recently added 150,000 square feet to the Carson satellite facility two years ago, the Youngstown, Ohio facility last year and now the new facility in Mississippi,” he explained. “We now operate a total of seven facilities.”

Brentwood Originals is also adding blowing, sewing and packing equipment as well as scanning and conveyor machinery to support the added production operation at the new site.

And the company is implementing a new ERP system, “which will help us achieve additional efficiencies in our operations and service levels to our customers,” Sweet summed.
