After experiencing unprecedented growth over the past year, Brooklyn Bedding is expanding its production capabilities even further with a new manufacturing facility. The company recently signed a lease to take over a 150,000-square-foot space in Phoenix, AZ. The move will allow Brooklyn Bedding to streamline its manufacturing process, resulting in twice as many mattresses produced daily with more inventory on hand for immediate shipment.
“Our increased production capacity means customers don’t have to wait another night to get the best sleep ever,” said Tim Dilworth, chief operating officer at Brooklyn Bedding. “After a record breaking fourth quarter we’re in prime position to elevate our manufacturing game. Offering free, same day shipping to our key wholesale and retail customers is a bold initiative that will further differentiate us in a highly competitive industry.”
Founded on an ongoing commitment to engineering high quality products at factory direct prices, Brooklyn Bedding has continued to generate ongoing success in recent years. With a newly adopted drop ship model, the company has been able to service some of the nation’s largest online retailers with on-demand production. In 2018, it more than tripled its online mattress sales while doubling in-store revenue on Black Friday.
In addition to adding several key wholesale accounts in recent months, Brooklyn Bedding has also launched a number of popular niche sleep solutions under its private label umbrella. Increased demand for mattresses like the eco-friendly Bloom Hybrid by Brooklyn Bedding, and the technologically advanced Spartan by Brooklyn Bedding, has resulted in the acquisition of more equipment—which has, in turn, also driven the need for extra space.
“When we built our modern manufacturing facility from the ground up in 2015, we were in awe at how spacious it was,” said Merwin. “We believed we had ample room for growth for many years to come. Just over three years later, we’re bursting at the seams. It’s a good challenge to face: we already have the business and the inventory to double our production capacity.”
A pioneer of the bed-in-a-box concept, Brooklyn Bedding designs all of its mattresses for compression and free shipping nationwide. The brand’s manufacturing autonomy, as well as its on-demand approach, empowers Brooklyn Bedding to pass savings on to customers while allowing retailers to order exactly the products they need, when they need them. The company's operations at its new location will commence at the beginning of 2019—and same-day shipping will become available to key customers in the first quarter.
