PLAINFIELD — State officials say mattress maker Tempur Sealy International Inc. will locate a new manufacturing plant and distribution facility near Plainfield, creating up to 300 new jobs by 2015.

The Indiana Economic Development Corp. says the Lexington, Kentucky-based company will open a 600,000 square-foot leased facility that will be Tempur Sealy's first combination assembly and distribution center. It will manufacture and distribute the Tempur Sealy brands and distribute Tempur-Pedic products.

The IEDC says Tempur Sealy plans to begin accepting applications for nearly 200 manufacturing, office and supervisory positions at the Plainfield plant in October.

The IEDC says it offered the company up to $2.8 million in conditional tax credits and up to $100,000 in training grants based on the company's job creation plans.
