ATLANTA, Ga. – E-commerce furniture and mattress provider Zinus USA Inc. said it will invest $108 million to develop its first North American advanced manufacturing facility. Located in McDonough, Georgia, the new facility is expected to open in the first half of 2021 and will also serve as a distribution center. When completed, it is expected to create 804 jobs in Henry County.

The news was announced Aug. 18 at a ceremony attended by Georgia Governor Brian P. Kemp and Zinus USA leadership.  Zinus USA is a subsidiary of Zinus Inc., a worldwide company with locations in 20 countries. Although Zinus has several distribution centers in the United States, this will be its first U.S. manufacturing facility. The company’s other manufacturing facilities are located in Indonesia and China.

Zinus is known for infusing natural ingredients including green tea, olive oil, and charcoal, into its mattresses and home furniture, including bed foundations, platform beds, sofas, and loveseats, all shipped directly to customers’ doors.

“As we continue to grow into new markets and expand our own vertical integration capabilities, establishing our first-ever production center in the U.S. is a critical step in our evolution as a global business,” said Keith Reynolds, president of Zinus USA. “Georgia was a natural choice when considering the location for our new facility, and we’re proud to bring new jobs to the hardworking community in Henry County. Not only will this investment ensure we can better serve partners like Walmart, Amazon, Wayfair, and Costco, but it will allow us to continue delivering high-value products at affordable prices to our loyal customers for years to come.”

In his remarks, Gov. Kemp noted,  “I know this international company with a strong worldwide reach will feel right at home in Henry County. I appreciate their investment and the trust they’ve placed in hardworking Georgians, and I’m confident that, thanks to our unmatched logistics network and pro-business environment, their business will find new opportunities to succeed as they begin operations in McDonough.”
