Serta Simmons Bedding (SSB), the largest manufacturer and distributor of mattresses in North America, has officially opened its new headquarters in Doraville, Georgia at the new Assembly Yards development. On Friday, May 3, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and Doraville Mayor Donna Pittman joined SSB Chairman and CEO Dave Swift at the grand opening and welcomed the company’s Atlanta employees.
Combining the company’s four U.S. office locations into one space, the five acre, 210,000 square foot facility is the new workplace for approximately 500 Serta Simmons Bedding employees. With room for expansive showrooms to showcase its products to retail partners and suppliers, the site also features new, on-site innovation and product development facilities in which state-of-the-art products will be created.
“We are excited to have our corporate and brand teams together in this beautiful new campus in Doraville,” said Serta Simmons Bedding CEO David Swift. “We expect to reap the benefits of better collaboration and building community within Serta Simmons Bedding, and with the broader Doraville area. As the leading sleep company in North America, we are proud to be the first corporate resident in Assembly Yards, and confirm our commitment to Georgia.”
The 165-acre Assembly project is at the site of the former General Motors Assembly plant along I-285 near the I-85 exchange. SSB selected the location because of its access to public transportation and expansive space for both the corporate headquarters and the research and innovation facility. The mixed use development is already the home of Third Rail Studios and will eventually be the home of additional businesses, residential units, restaurants and parks.
“Serta Simmons Bedding bringing its leadership team to our state is proof that Georgia is open for business. I look forward to working with them in the future to provide more jobs for hardworking Georgians and more investment for local communities, and I thank them for their commitment to the Peach State.” said Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.
