Comfort Solutions’ Texas-based licensee has announced three-day of events to celebrate the opening of its new 200,000-square-foot manufacturing, sales education and office complex in Ft. Worth, Texas.
The Grand Opening celebration—to which hundreds of retailers and industry associates have been invited—will be held June 22-24. The event will begin with a ribbon-cutting and presentations by Comfort Solutions president Dave Roberts and sleep expert Dr. Michael Breus. Also scheduled that day are new product presentations, factory tours, retailer education sessions and a gala party and dinner.
Over the weekend, retailers will have the opportunity to review the more than 100 beds that will be showcased—a representation of the company’s complete range of products.
The grand opening of the new Comfort Solutions-Texas complex has been planned to coincide with the Dallas Total Home & Gift Market (June 20-26) at the Dallas World Trade Center, from which the new facility is only 20 minutes’ travel time.
“This celebration is a sincere ‘thank you’ to our many retail customers, industry partners and employees to whom my family owes our success,” commented Rizwan Sunderji, senior vice president of the family business that was founded as Sleeptronic® more than 20 years ago.
“Our new home will better accommodate our growth and enable us to capitalize more fully on the product lines and marketing opportunities that Comfort Solutions offers.”
According to Sunderji, the biggest difference between the company’s former 50,000-square-foot facility in Dallas and the new complex lies in scope and sophistication. The Sunderji family spent more than a year remodeling and upgrading an existing structure in Centreport Industrial Park to maximize efficiency and design while minimizing the plant’s environmental footprint.
“The new complex is a model facility in terms of its layout, design, state-of-the-art equipment, accommodations for customers and employees, and environmental standards,” Roberts said.
“We’re very proud of what Comfort Solutions-Texas has accomplished.”
Located on an 11-acre site, the factory features bright, energy-saving lighting throughout and new, high efficiency equipment like computerized quilters, tape edge and packaging machinery, plus a 2,000-foot-long conveyor—affording an output of up to 4,000 pieces per day.
“Waste from every subcomponent in our manufacturing process will now be re-sold for re-use,” explained Alim Sunderji, executive vice president. “Waste overall will be greatly reduced through increased efficiency and new technologies.”
A two-story, 20,000-square-foot office/showroom space is situated within the building and features a custom-designed exterior entry. The office interior—designed in a progressive industrial style—includes on the top floor a 10,000-square-foot reconfigurable showroom with multi-channel, high-definition monitors; a customer entertainment center and lounge; a board room, executive offices and an office for outside salespeople.
On the ground floor Comfort Solutions-Texas has installed a second, larger board room which adjoins a sophisticated product education center. A series of retailer-focused seminars led by content experts are now in development for the center, covering topics like product components, selling strategies and retail marketing.
Also at ground level are an employee break room, additional office space and a designated area for the company’s logistics department.
Comfort Solutions-Texas, which makes both Comfort Solutions and its own branded products, was founded by the Sunderjis in 1991. Today, the company is operated by Amir (“Andy”) as president and CEO; Alim; Rizwan; Jameel, vice president, and Yasmin, office manager.
Other key staffers include Anthony Klatt, director of sales and marketing, and Arturo Alcala, plant manager.
“We could never have reached this company milestone alone,” concluded Amir Sunderji. “On behalf of our entire family, we express our sincere gratitude to everyone who helped make this possible.”
