Foam fabricator expands High Point operations

HICKORY, N.C. — HS Foam Fabricators, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hickory Springs Manufacturing Co., is opening a second foam fabrication facility in High Point to further expand capacity for its business and provide additional support to current and new customers.

“The High Point region is a significant area for furniture, and we are excited to be increasing our capacity to better serve our customers” said Jason Porter, vice president of sales.

The addition of the 60,000-square-foot foam fabrication facility is expected to increase HSM’s production volume in the Triad and North Carolina area, as well as improve the overall flow of production in the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Called High Point East, the multi-purpose facility houses assembly and cutting operations. It is the ninth foam fabrication location for HSM, which already operates in six states: North Carolina, Florida, Kentucky, Iowa, Indiana and Mississippi.

“Over the next six months, HSM will be adding various career opportunities in High Point to support operations,” said Michael Heyn, vice president of operations.

Hickory Springs Manufacturing Company, based in Hickory, N.C., has more than 25 manufacturing plants in 13 states.
