The rapidly expanding e-Commerce mattress & furniture company will invest $108 million in the new facility and subsequently create 804 jobs in the Henry County region.
As per the statement made by Governor Kemp, he is excited about the manufacturing facility development plan set by Zinus in Georgia.

Zinus, which has been functioning for nearly 40 years in the home furnishings industry, has a regional presence across 20 countries and is planning to continuously expand its international footprint in years to come.
