SGL Carbon needs more space in order to start using new processes for fiber-based composites. As a result, they are planning to expand their current facility in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. They will be investing $4.5 million toward the project, which will cover the cost of the expansion and new materials. Along with this, they also plan to create 35 new jobs. This just goes to show how companies trust Right to Work economies, and in turn, give back to them.
From Area Development Magazine:
“Composite battery enclosures fit perfectly to the specific needs of modern e-car chassis. Thus, […] we also support the great trend towards more e-mobility in the US. In addition, our facility produces a variety of carbon and glass fiber-reinforced products for a wide range of industrial applications within the automotive and aerospace industries as well as the energy sector.” […]
“For decades, SGL Carbon has served as a leading producer of unique graphite and composite materials and manufacturer of products known for their versatile industrial applications. We are happy that the company now expands further at its Arkadelphia location. The strengths of our workforce in south Arkansas, partnered with our low cost of doing business, made Arkadelphia a prime location for SGL Carbon’s new production processes. We look forward to our continued partnership with the company as it embarks on this new endeavor.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
