Jonesboro, AR -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/02/2015 -- Hytrol Conveyor Co., Inc. announced a $12 million expansion to be completed by early 2016, reported Chris Glenn, Hytrol Vice President of Manufacturing and Engineering Operations. The project includes a 62,000 square foot expansion of Hytrol's manufacturing facility, including a new paint system, lasers, brake presses, and computerized numerical control (CNC) equipment. Up to 75 new permanent positions will be required as a result of the expansion.
Hytrol had a record year in sales in 2014, and expects to see that number grow in 2015. Glenn said, "We're trying to support the tremendous growth that we've seen recently, and to lay the groundwork for our future growth as well. We will be breaking ground in the next week or two and we've already begun hiring new employees."
The building expansion is expected to be completed in eight months, with the paint system completion date set for two months after that. The parking lot will also be expanded, with 100 more spaces added so that shifts can again work seamlessly back-to-back.
