Soft-Tex International, a supplier of utility bedding, memory foam mattresses and other home comfort products, recently announced a major expansion of its South Carolina distribution facility and introduced Gary Semon as the new manager of the South Carolina operation.
Soft-Tex’s presence in South Carolina has expanded nearly ten-fold since opening operations in the Charleston area to establish a warehouse and distribution center supported by efficiencies from the South Carolina Ports Authority system. Adding more than 60% of the 145,000 square feet in the building which Soft-Tex previously occupied, the small 25,000 square foot 2013 Soft-Tex space has grown to now occupy all 236,843 square feet of its current warehouse.
The expansion is reflective of both heightened demand for Soft-Tex’s products in the retail marketplace as well as an investment in the company’s fast-growing Vendor Direct division which is utilized by partners like Macy’s, JCPenney, Bed Bath and Beyond, Kohl’s, Amazon, Wayfair, Overstock, Walmart.com, Belk, Groupon and more.
“The expansion at our South Carolina warehouse and distribution facility will allow us to be more agile in responding to changes in customer demand and other market factors while further enhancing our best-in-class fulfillment service to our retail partners, especially those who leverage our Vendor Direct programs,” said Soft-Tex CEO Jeff Chilton.
As part of its Vendor Direct program, Soft-Tex is pleased to offer an assortment of hundreds of in-stock SKUs across all available bedding lines and mattresses, award-winning accuracy and fulfillment times, and 100% recycled corrugated packaging.
