More Jobs Heading to Arkansas Via Bekaert

Bekaert Steel Tire Cord

Folks in Arkansas will be seeing an uptake in employment opportunities via the global steel cord producer, Bekaert.

According to the world-wide company, it will expand its manufacturing plant in Rogers, Arkansas. In order to meet the increasing demand from tire manufacturers, the plant will beef up its production an additional 50-percent, which should add another 100 new jobs.

Belgium based Bekaert, its origins dating back to the 1880s, opened its Rogers plant in 1989 where it continues to manufacture steel cord for the tire industry across the United States.

According to Bekaert,

"Bekaert projects continued strong and growing demand from the tire manufacturers based in the US, as a result of the expansion programs of the tire manufacturers in the country and of their preference to source domestically produced tire cord."

The company will receive 3-years of cash rebates, as well as sales and use tax credits resulting from the additional new jobs and the overall expansion in production.
