Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/27/2016 -- David Peacock, Hytrol Conveyor president, recently discussed the importance of onshoring in manufacturing. Onshoring has been a growing trend for American manufacturing recently—about 700,000 jobs have been added in this industry since 2010, and that number continues to grow. Hytrol is actively participating in this trend by expanding its operations in Jonesboro, AR.
Peacock noted, "As we expand our facility, we are also increasing the number of positions we have to offer. Onshoring is viewed as a positive turn for several reasons, and for Hytrol the reasons are simple: we want to continue to make the highest quality products in the world, to remain able to swiftly react to changing demands, and to support our hometown families. Our decision also fits with our core value of serving as good corporate citizens by proactively creating opportunities within the U.S. economy."
