Shelton, CT — Just one year after its factory burned to the ground, Latex Foam International, formerly Latex Foam Products, marked its return to home textiles production yesterday with a celebration and visits from its manufacturing and retail partners from around the nation.
The day's festivities included a short film that featured many of LFI's employees and management, speeches from the company's chairman and co-founder William Coffey, and president/ceo Stephen Russo, and tours of the new 208,000-square-foot facility and its state-of-the-art equipment.
Russo recalled how skeptic's doubted LFI's plan to reopen and begin production after only a year had passed. But, he said, "I'd like to welcome you back to the land of 'where it can be done.'"
