Tifton, GA – March 9, 2018 – American Textile Company, a leading provider of innovative sleep solutions, officially opened its newest location in Tifton, GA on March 7.

American Textile Company’s expanding e-commerce business has been a key contributor, growing an impressive 50 percent year-over-year.
American Textile Company growth has also created job opportunity; the company has embraced a role in talent development and training future workers in the communities in which it operates through contributions to scholarship and skills development programs like the Pittsburgh Promise and the Tifton College & Career Academy. The Tifton opening event concluded with a $35,000 grant to the Tifton College & Career Academy.
