Polish investment creates jobs in US

Polish company to employ 800 in Danville, Virginia

A Polish company that makes mattresses and upholstered furniture will invest $36.3 million to open a manufacturing plant in Danville, Gov. Timothy M. Kaine announced today.

The project will create 813 jobs in an area that has been hit hard by declines in the tobacco, textile and furniture industries.

I didn't know they produced for IKEA. They also have there own stores here which are a lot more upscale than the Swedish Monster.

They do really nice looking furniture, which would sadly last about 10 minutes once my pets got near it.
