Sandman Bedding, manufacturer of bedding and mattresses, is locating operations in Belden. The project is a $2.3 million corporate investment and will create 25 jobs.
Sandman Bedding will produce mattresses, mattress toppers and pillows for e-commerce and retail. The company is retrofitting a 70,000-square-foot facility where it will develop its direct-to-consumer mattress product under the Nest and Wild brand developed by its founders. Sandman Bedding also will design and manufacture sleep products for other brands across the United States.
The Mississippi Development Authority is providing assistance for building and infrastructure improvements. MDA also certified the company for the Advantage Jobs Rebate Program, which is for eligible businesses that create new jobs exceeding the average annual wage of the state or county in which the company locates or expands.
Sandman Bedding expects to begin operations in Belden in January and plans to fill the new jobs by the third quarter of the year
