Founded in 1971, Tipton Manufacturing, Inc. (as we were called then) was located on South Main in Corsicana, Texas. Our founders originally established the company to fulfill the demand of furniture and bedding for mobile home manufacturers. Now, 40 years later, we’re still leading the industry and have become one of the most solid bedding manufacturers in the nation.
A Time of Growth
In 1974, we moved into a 24,000 square foot facility in Corsicana. And as the economy changed, we expanded our services to include production for retail furniture and bedding stores. By the end of 1978, the demand for our mattresses and box springs was booming. So we changed our name to Corsicana Bedding, Inc. to reflect our growth and focus in this amazing industry. We continued to grow through the mid 1980's. In 1987, we expanded our sales area from a 150-mile radius to a multi-state region that included Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
Our Texas manufacturing plant spans over 144,000 square foot. Our state of the art facility is capable of producing 4,000 pieces per day on two 10-hour shifts and houses computerized machinery, conveyors and a bar code tracking system.
Recognizing the significance transportation plays in limiting or shaping the avenues of growth, we began developing our own trucking operation. We now own our own fleet of trucks and trailers to serve our customers.
In 1996 we opened a plant in Shelbyville, TN. After two years of rapid growth, we moved our plant into a 96,000 sq. ft. facility. This facility also has state of the art equipment and a fleet of trucks to deliver product to customers. This plant is capable of producing 4,000 pieces per day on two shifts and services Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Missouri. We’ve recently expanded the plant to 140,000 sq. ft.
