The company will invest $108 million and create 804 jobs in Henry County.
With over 40 years of experience in the home furnishings industry, Zinus has expanded to 20 countries across the globe and plans to continue growing their international footprint in the coming years.
Zinus has several distribution centers across the U.S., but this marks the company’s first U.S. manufacturing facility. The company’s other manufacturing facilities are located in Indonesia and China. Renowned for their expertly engineered products, Zinus infuses natural ingredients including green tea, olive oil, and charcoal into their mattresses and home furniture.
Through its investment, one of the largest in Georgia since the start of the new fiscal year, Zinus will bring hundreds of good paying advanced manufacturing jobs to the area. The new manufacturing facility is expected to open in the first half of 2021, and will also serve as a U.S. distribution center for the company.
Georgia remains a national leader in advanced manufacturing and continues to attract global businesses like Zinus. The state’s strength across multiple manufacturing sectors resulted in a GDP of $64.7 billion in 2019, and the Georgia Department of Labor estimated that there were 385,300 manufacturing jobs in the state as of June 2020. ■
