The company is commonly known as "Purple", they are a technology company that operates to provide comfort by making the Purple® mattress, pillows, and seat cushions. Those 500 jobs will take part in various sectors such as fulfillment, customer care, production, and other areas in the business.

The commitment to provide jobs in Henry County was made last year after the company plan to create more than 360 jobs. After the expansion process is complete, Purple expects to employ more than 800 people in Georgia.

“After recently being admitted to the Georgia Made program, it's great to see this company already thriving and expanding here in Georgia,” said Governor 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,” he added.

“Purple is thrilled to expand our footprint across the country to better serve our customers and create jobs in Henry County, 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.” said CEO of Purple, Joe Megibow.

The first expansion will begin in the customer care sector and the current company's facility is expected to open in the spring of 2022. The remaining time will allow Purple to develop and assemble its proprietary production machinery, called Mattress Max™ Machines.

Their first agenda of employment is to train new people in customer care representatives, content specialists, and quality assurance analysts. Those who are interested in working with Purple can visit purple.com/careers for more information.
