Bedgear begins manufacturing domestically, adds dozens of new hires

What’s happening: Bedgear has expanded its domestic mattress manufacturing operations into its 275,000-square-foot facility in Rock Hill, where pillow production has operated since 2013.

Why it matters: In the last two years, the company has added about 50 global retail mattress customers and is expected to manufacture more than 25,000 mattresses and create dozens of manufacturing and warehouse jobs by the end of 2023.

In 2022, Bedgear created 24 new positions in Forecasting & Planning, Sales, Sales Education, Operations, Consumer Marketing, Merchandising, Creative and Branding.
