Ashley Furniture Industries is expanding its furniture manufacturing operations with a new 225,000-square-foot plant in Tolleson, Arizona that will employ more than 200 workers.
This will be the company’s 14th manufacturing plant servicing the U.S. and it will begin producing upholstery later this month.
The new leased facility represents a multi-million dollar investment in both machinery and equipment costs, and the company said it has already started hiring and will be holding an on-site recruiting event from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Dec. 8 for first-shift manufacturing positions.
“The high demand for furniture has led us to increase our manufacturing, distribution and retail operations,” says Todd Wanek, president and CEO of Ashley Furniture Industries. “We couldn’t be more thrilled to expand operations into the state of Arizona. Local leadership has been very welcoming, and we look forward to working together on this landmark project.”
