JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - A local company's relocation is adding new jobs to the region.
Bed In A Box is located on East Millard Street in Johnson City. The company makes mattresses and folds them so they fit in a box to be shipped.
News 5 learned the product is packaged at the warehouse, then shipped all over the world.
The company's president tells News 5 it's been a good move from the Piney Flats location to Johnson City, and they've added some new jobs. "Probably six since we've been here, but we're gradually growing every month. We've had steady growth every month during 2013," company president Bill Bradley said.
Bradley says most of the company's sales are online, but now that the showroom is close to Interstate 26, on-site sales will, hopefully, increase.
