The La Porte County Council has approved a resolution in support of a Dallas-based manufacturer’s expansion to the county.

Corsicana Mattress Co. in August announced plans to lease and equip a 165,000-square-foot facility on South 500 West in La Porte for a bed-in-a-box manufacturing plant. The development will create up to 350 jobs.

The council says the economic revitalization area resolution will support a graduated property tax relief measure for the company. Corsicana Chief Operating Officer James Booth says the county has been “incredibly welcoming” since its first introduction to the area.

“I have helped to open manufacturing plants all over the world and am happy to have chosen La Porte County for Corsicana’s new home,” said Booth. “We saw the entire La Porte County team work together to help us make this move as seamless as possible. We could not be more happy with our choice to expand here.”

Corsicana is currently operating out of a temporary location in Michigan City.

Renovations to the La Porte facility are underway and Corsicana says it plans to hold a formal ribbon cutting ceremony in January.
