Hickory Springs Breaks Ground on $1.5 Million Facility

Hickory Springs Manufacturing Co. broke ground on April 19 on a new 10,000-square-foot foam tech lab in Conover, N.C.

The $1.5 million facility will expand current operations at the Hickory Springs Conover foam complex and enhance the company’s ability to formulate foams by incorporating new pilot lines and improved testing capabilities, according to the company.

“This groundbreaking and the construction that begins today is a tangible illustration of the increased emphasis Hickory Springs is placing on research and innovation as the company moves forward,” said Dave Colburn, Hickory Springs president and CEO. “It also supports the transition currently underway at Hickory Springs, from being a components supplier to a global manufacturer of integrated solutions and components, and demonstrates the company’s continued investment in people, facilities and technologies that are so critical to our success.”

Colburn, along with Dwayne Welch, executive vice president and chief marketing and innovation officer; and Bobby Bush, senior vice president of foam technology, hosted a groundbreaking event April 19.
