"We made a promise to grow our domestic footprint and have delivered on that promise through adding massive production capacity and American jobs ," says Soft-Tex Principal, Mark Smiderle. "Our work is far from over and we are looking forward to seeing continued growth here in the U.S. with our planned continued expansion."

The company has created many new manufacturing jobs in the last year and with the planned expansion of a blow-fill line and foam pouring line at its Sugar Land, TX facility, plans to add another 50-100 roles at the end of those projects.

Longer term, Soft-Tex is planning to open 2 additional U.S.-based manufacturing facilities to better serve national retail distribution centers and provide eCommerce freight arbitrage to offer nationwide 2-day or better ground delivery service for the contiguous U.S.
