L&P completed construction on our original Dallas factory in the 1930s. This early aerial photo shows the facility located on Oak Lawn Avenue in what is now downtown Dallas. Within the next decade, due primarily to city politics and the increasing value of the property, L&P sold the land and moved its operations 35 miles south to Ennis, Texas.
The original plant in Ennis, Texas (below) produced innersprings, all-wire bedsprings, and some furniture components. By the end of 1948, L&P was already planning the facility’s first expansion.
If one of your goals for 2020 is to see a better you, you’ll first have to do a little bit of growing. Self-development takes time and energy, but if you’re committed to improving, you’ll notice profound results — both in your personal life and at work! Here are our tips for developing yourself:
L&P was happy to partner with Joyfield Flower Truck in spreading love today. Each bouquet earned a donation for United Way — plus the flowers are beautiful! #DoSomeGood
It’s a new year, folks, and we’ve got some new faces at L&P! To kick off 2020, we’re introducing you to several of our recent hires and their thoughts on the year ahead.
Meet Samantha Doubledee, a Controller who supports our Project Office within Marketing + Creative.
What brought you to Leggett?
I was previously employed at a local non-profit. However, when I learned about this position I knew there would be so much opportunity to grow within a corporate atmosphere. I’ve been challenged since my first day and have already taken on additional responsibilities in the Project Management Office. I’m excited for my future here at L&P.
What’s something surprising about you?
I married my high school sweetheart. It’s crazy to think we have been together 17 years. We have 2 amazing kids, and love to travel together. We have a bucket list of destinations, including a trip to visit his family overseas this year — it will be a great way to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary!
What’s your biggest goal for 2020?
2020 is the year of ME! I’m looking forward to taking time to get back on track mentally and physically. I love having a creative outlet and have been diving into my Cricut projects. I also have weight-loss goals, a travel wish list, and other goals that focus on being a better version of myself as a wife and mom.
We’d like to thank all the employees who attended this morning’s Town Hall Meeting — both at Corporate and around the globe via live broadcast. We look forward to an exciting future at L&P!
Last week, we shared a behind-the-scenes shot of our ribbon cutting ceremony during Las Vegas Market. Here’s the official photo!
