MLILY USA told the Rock Hill Herald that it anticipates opening a 300,000-square-foot facility by late June. The company expects to hire 150 workers in the Charlotte, North Carolina, suburb.
MLILY officials said in an announcement that the Rock Hill expansion would help the company meet the growing demand for foam and hybrid mattresses, adjustable bases, and pillows. MLILY President Stephen Chen said the company, which seeks to produce all materials and components in-house at its facilities, set a U.S. sales record last year and aims to double its revenue this year and in each of the next two years.
“The new facility in South Carolina will strengthen our identity as a viable resource for U.S. consumers, who are increasingly interested in buying made-in-America products, and will bolster our ability to ship quickly to our customers and provide best-in-class customer service,” Chen said.
The project would increase MLILY’s workforce in South Carolina to about 400; its first U.S. production facility opened in nearby Winnsboro in 2019. The company, a subsidiary of China-based Healthcare Co. Ltd., is based in Knoxville, Tennessee.
