April 09, 2020
MEBANE, NC, SHAWINIGAN, QC and TORONTO, April 9, 2020 - Luxury bedding brand Kingsdown (producing also in Québec under the brand Zedbed) is shifting its regular mattress production capabilities to manufacture beds for use in health care facilities, temporary health care outposts and treatment facilities to assist during the COVID-19 pandemic. The changeover has been completed to produce hospital beds in three of the company's factories located in Mebane, North Carolina, USA, Toronto, Ontario and Shawinigan, Quebec in Canada. We estimate that 40% of our workers at the plants would be able to keep their jobs as we launch this new production.
