Here in Corsicana, we’re always happy when everyone makes it home, and we’re excited to welcome back the headquarters of Corsicana Mattress Company
, returning from Dallas. Corsicana Mattress Company, established in 1971 right here in town, has factories across the country and has produced and sold more than a million mattresses.
To support their continued success, the City Council has approved a tax abatement offer which includes the addition of 100 new jobs to the 350 current employees, and a new 366,000 square foot building in the I-45 Industrial Park. Corsicana Mattress will be the first manufacturer in the I-45 Industrial Park, which is owned jointly by the City and Navarro County.
Over in the Highway 31 Industrial Park, construction continues at the Audubon Metals
LLC, Texas site. This second location for the Kentucky-based company will create 100 new manufacturing jobs making aluminum alloys used in die casting. So far, the water lines, wastewater lines, and a temporary road have been completed to the 95-acre site. Soon a new rail spur will be constructed with funding made available by an Economic Development Administration grant.
With all this new construction, we’re also looking forward to the coming improvements at the former Gander Mountain building in the Corsicana Crossing Shopping Center. This desirable and highly visible location has been purchased by BH Properties with the intention of getting it ready for market. With over 87,000 square feet sitting on about 10 acres, it’s no wonder the site is getting attention from several potential businesses.
This is great news for our city and all who live and work here. New jobs, new construction, and new opportunities for existing property assures me that Corsicana is alive and well, today and into the future. Thank you for making Corsicana your home.
