LM Glasfiber will open a new facility in Little Rock, Ark., with operations scheduled to begin next year. The company expects the plant to employ more than 1,000 people within five years.
‘We couldn't be happier with the location,’ says Roland M. Sunden, CEO of LM Glasfiber. ‘Not only is the site ideally located to serve some of the central U.S. demand for wind development, but Arkansas was able to accommodate our aggressive ramp-up schedule, and we have every confidence they will exceed our stated goals.’
LM Glasfiber says the addition of the Little Rock plant will double the capacity of the company's factories in Grand Forks, N.D., and Gaspe, Quebec.
