American Textile Company, Pittsburgh, Penn., has announced key moves to support its continued growth, including a new distribution center near its Pittsburgh-area headquarters. The 98,000 square-foot facility in McKeesport will serve customers throughout the northeast. The company has also appointed Traci Hayes as vice president of its e-commerce business to drive new initiatives in the high growth segment.
These efforts come on the heels of the company’s addition of innovative sleep brands Sealy® and Tempur-Pedic® to its portfolio, and two years of rapid increases in its e-commerce sales. The McKeesport facility marks American Textile Company’s sixth domestic distribution facility and will increase its capacity by more than 50 percent in the region. The textile maker expects to bring more than 75 jobs to the region over the next five years.
Recent hire Traci Hayes brings more than 20 years of e-commerce experience to American Textile Company, where she oversees all online sales and marketing efforts. Prior to this role, Hayes spent more than six years leading the e-commerce business for DICK’s Sporting Goods.
