Prime-Line, Inc. expands in Arkansas
Company to create 50 jobs, invest $6.7 million in new facility and equipment.

MALVERN, Arkansas (November 22, 2013) – Prime-Line Inc., a 17-year-old, Malvern-based company that manufactures medium- and light-density fiberboard moulding and millwork for nationwide distributors, today announced the company is expanding, building a new manufacturing facility in Malvern. Through the expansion, Prime-Line will create 50 new jobs and invest more than $6.7 million in the new facility and manufacturing line.

Prime-Line’s products are sold in retail outlets including Lowe’s and Home Depot, and the company is Lowe’s single largest domestic supplier east of the Rocky Mountains.

“We are extremely excited about the new manufacturing line and facility,” said Brian Feeney, president and CEO of Prime-Line, Inc. “For the past 18 months we have had to turn away business as we had sold all of our previous capacity during this time. This project will allow us to say “yes” again to our customers and sales team. As a business owner, the most frustrating thing is having to turn away business knowing it is right there for the taking. It’s very exciting to open our doors for new business again.”

Prime-Line’s new manufacturing facility will be located at 2088 Wine Dot Road in Malvern. The company was previously located in the Jones Mill Industrial Park in Hot Spring County.

Prime-Line will have the ability to produce more than two million lineal feet of primed moulding per week in the new Malvern facility.

“Prime-Line is an Arkansas, and an American, success story,” Governor Mike Beebe said. “With once just a handful of workers, Prime-Line will now employ nearly 100 people in Malvern, all through the manufacturing of a 'Made in the U.S.A.' product that has remained popular among American retailers.”

Prime-Line has made the Inc. 5000 List twice in the past five years. Since the company was incorporated in 1996, it has grown from six to 46 employees. This current expansion will allow Prime-Line to double its workforce.

“Prime-Line’s decision to make a significant investment to expand in Hot Spring County is a testament to the quality and dedication of our workforce in this area,” said Nikki Launius, executive director of the Malvern/Hot Spring County Chamber of Commerce. “Prime-Line continues to grow and we are proud to call the company one of our own.”
