Eric Murphy, VP of marketing, said in the news announcement, “Jimmy’s vast knowledge of wound care, long-term care and the ability to manage and scale large sales organizations will be a tremendous asset to Comfort Company as we work to achieve our sales objectives.”

Murphy added that the manufacturer’s continued growth resulted in Comfort Company’s production facility more than doubling its previous size. Comfort Company has also expanded its education and marketing departments.

“It’s an exciting time for our organization,” Murphy added. “Although there have been many industry challenges over the past couple years, we have been fortunate enough to continue to grow, and we don’t expect that to change anytime soon. Our new 83,000 square-foot production facility will allow us to support our anticipated growth for at least another five years.”
