A Chinese pillow and mattress maker is moving into the former Whirlpool plant in La Vergne.
Hong Kong-based Sinomax announced Tuesday that it'll spend $28 million to convert the manufacturing facility on Hennessy Drive. The company plans to employ 350 people, starting in June.
The plant is the company's first in the United States. The factory will slash the cost to ship its bulky products, says Sinomax USA president Frank Chen.
