Plastics manufacturer announces new plant in Izard County

Posted By on Thu, Oct 15, 2015 at 2:14 PM

Micro Plastics, a Flippin-based concern said to be the largest manufacturer of threaded nylon fasteners in the world, said today it would add a new factory in Melbourne that will employ 79 over five years.

The company, which came to Arkansas 40 years ago, now employs almost 400 in Flippin, where plastic injection molding machines make nylon hardware. It will invest $2.4 million in the new plant.

The Arkansas Department of Economic Development said the state would provide a $200,000 grant for equipment, give the company an income tax credit based on new jobs and sales tax refunds on building materials and equipment.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
