Future Foam Inc. has plans to renovate and occupy a 341,840-square-foot warehouse in Garland, which has been vacant since 2015.
The Iowa-based manufacturer, which specializes in polyurethane foam products, plans to spend nearly $3 million to renovate the existing warehouse at 3000 W. Kingsley Road. It has been vacant since APEX Tool Group consolidated its operations from Garland to South Carolina, resulting in the loss of 261 jobs.
Future Foam expects to create 104 full time jobs over the next few years. The company also intends to reactivate rail service to the facility. https://www.google.com/maps/embed?pb=!1m18!1m12!1m3!1d1276.4432975226807!2d-96.67642942035278!3d32.877770737221695!2m3!1f0!2f0!3f0!3m2!1i1024!2i768!4f13.1!3m3!1m2!1s0x864ea0c7c22d0f4b%3A0x53abbe17f1ccf2c7!2s3000%20W%20Kingsley%20Rd%2C%20Garland%2C%20TX%2075041!5e1!3m2!1sen!2sus!4v1621700319902!5m2!1sen!2sus
“Future Foam is excited to announce the expansion of manufacturing operations into Garland, which is advantageous for its strategic location and manufacturing resources. We are happy to work together with the city of Garland in a mutually beneficial partnership,” said Patrick Medinger, Future Foam CFO, in a prepared statement. “Future Foam is a family-owned company that has been in operation since 1958. We focus on bringing the highest quality products through innovative, customer driven solutions.”
The company already operates two other facilities in Northwest Dallas, along with some 30 other facilities in 18 states and international facilities in Germany and China.
Dallas-based FB Flurry, a privately owned fulfillment and technology company, will soon be joining Future Foam in Garland. Last week the company announced it would be taking 472,200 square feet at 3737 W. Miller Road, the largest lease signed in the Garland/Northeast Dallas submarket since the start of the year.« Previous Post
