Boyd Specialty Sleep has named Scott Price to the position of international buyer. In his new post, Price will report to Boyd and will be responsible for purchasing components, equipment and other materials needed in the design and manufacture of Boyd’s diverse line of sleep products and accessories in the U.S. and overseas.
Before joining Boyd, Price was the senior buyer of power equipment for Sears Holdings, representing more than 1,900 stores and $370 million in purchasing dollars. From 2012 to 2014, Price served as the senior buyer for hardware, automotive, fans/heaters and pet merchandise at Roses/Maxway and Super 10 stores. Prior to that he was a senior buyer for the 1,100-store Tractor Supply Co. chain from 2009 to 2012, and also held buyer and divisional merchandise manager responsibilities at Fred’s Discount Stores from 2005 to 2009.
This news follows the announcement that more than 300,000 cubic feet of storage space has been added to Boyd Specialty Sleep’s Fontana, Calif. manufacturing facility. Increased business demands mandated the need for more inventory storage--and this expansion will enable Boyd to store an additional 135 40-foot-high cube containers.
“It enables us to maintain our commitment to customers of a 24-hour ship time,” explained Denny Boyd, company president. “It also allows us to add additional products to our Thomasville, Broyhill and Lane furniture lines.”
