Newnan, Georgia – Foam manufacturer Elite Comfort Solutions is to set up a new foam manufacturing plant in Havre de Grace, Maryland, its first in the state. It predicts the new foam pouring and fabrication facility will employ 225 people by 2025.
The leased facility in the Harford County Enterprise Zone is being set up with the help of a $900k loan from the state economic development body Advantage Maryland, and a further $90k loan from Harford County. The company will also be eligible for various state and local tax credits.
Elite was acquired by Leggett & Platt in 2019. Its polyurethane foam products include memory foam, temperature responsive foam and conventional comfort foams for bedding, furniture and other fabricated items.
‘We look forward to continuing to grow Elite Comfort Solutions, and expanding our footprint with this new facility in Maryland will give us the capacity and location to accomplish that goal,’ said Tyson Hagale, president of bedding products at Leggett & Platt.
