Purple Innovation, best known for its Purple Mattress, is expanding its Henry County facility and adding 500 jobs.

The new positions the expansion will create include customer care representatives, training and content specialists and quality assurance analysts. The company committed to 360 jobs last year. The expansion of the company’s current facility will be utilized as a customer care center, slated to open in the spring of 2022. 

“Purple is thrilled to expand our footprint across the country to better serve our customers and create jobs in Henry County,” said Purple CEO Joe Megibow. “We know that Georgia is the right place to add these important roles as we build on the incredible foundation we’ve established with Governor Kemp and Henry County.”

Purple was recently admitted to the state’s premier Georgia Made program. The program was created in 2019 to celebrate the people and industries that manufacture a wide variety of products across the state. Companies accepted into the cost-free program join a roster of distinguished manufacturers that continue to shape Georgia jobs and the global supply chain.

“After recently being admitted to the Georgia Made program, it’s great to see this company already thriving and expanding here in Georgia,” said Gov. Brian Kemp. “I want to thank Purple for their commitment to creating an additional 500 jobs for hardworking Georgians and for making the Peach State a key player in their all-American success story.”
