MLILY USA Expands Domestic Manufacturing to Accommodate Increased Demand, Growing Product Line

October 7, 2020

Bedding supplier MLILY USA is expanding its manufacturing footprint in the United States for the second time in a year opening a factory in Arizona to accommodate increased demand from its growing network of retail and OEM partners. The new factory, working in tandem with the company’s facility on the East Coast, gives MLILY the additional space to build its comprehensive product lineup of boxed beds and toppers with increased speed to market.

According to MLILY’s research and experience, boxed beds are no longer relegated to the promotional segment of the market. Instead, the packaging is merely a means for easy delivery. As long as the mattress is designed to be compressed, folded and boxed, the price point is no longer a factor. Convenience and ease of delivery make the difference.

With its new bi-coastal manufacturing presence, MLILY can quickly meet consumers’ immediate needs, which bed-in-a-box products often fill, and negate long delivery times, which often result in buyers’ remorse.

Set to open in November, the new 644,000-square-foot factory, located in Goodyear, Arizona, will boost the company’s domestic manufacturing footprint to nearly 1.3 million square feet.

The new factory will open 11 months after MLILY opened its 650,000-square-foot facility in South Carolina. Both locations are designed for mattress and topper  production, foam pouring and spring manufacturing, giving the company a competitive edge during the current climate of component shortages currently sweeping through the industry. Once fully operational, the Arizona facility will manufacture 3,000 mattresses and toppers a day and employ 250, similar to the East Coast operation.

When the new factory in Arizona comes online, all of MLILY’s mattresses sold in the U.S. will be made in the U.S., preventing overseas delays. Currently, five warehouses totaling more than 200,000 square feet, strategically placed throughout the U.S., are backed by additional manufacturing facilities located in Serbia and Thailand. The company is looking to expand its warehouse space, as well, to add more inventory to allow for quicker delivery.

The combination of domestic manufacturing and warehousing position MLILY as the go-to bedding supplier with deep inventory designed for quick, seamless delivery. The company’s logistics department offers retailers the option of direct delivery to consumers or delivery to the store for final fulfillment.

In addition to the capital investments in new facilities, MLILY has upgraded its customer interface to include direct ordering accompanied by enhanced inventory controls that allow retailers to see available product, delivery dates and track deliveries in real time. To provide ongoing support for both retailers and consumers across the U.S., MLILY continues to bolster its customer service department with new, in-house representatives to offer solutions.

MLILY USA is the North American mattress and pillow company of Healthcare Co., Ltd. Based in Knoxville, Tennessee, the company’s mattresses, pillows and sleep accessories are all manufactured in state-of-the-art factories located in China, Thailand, Serbia, and Winnsboro, South Carolina, that span more than 6 million square feet.
