New equipment will include high capacity wet wipe production lines at three sites
Rockline Industries announced that it will be investing over USD 18 million this year on the installation of additional production lines in its three Arkansas-based wet wipes manufacturing facilities. As part of the expansion, Rockline is expected to add a total of 100 new jobs to handle the increased production capacity.
“Rockline has been proud to be a part of the Arkansas community for many years and we are excited to be bringing new jobs and new opportunities to our local communities,” says Ron Kerscher, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Rockline.
The new equipment will include high capacity wet wipe production lines in Rockline’s 370000-square-foot facility in Springdale, its 240000-square-foot facility in Russellville and its 1200000-square-foot facility in Booneville.
“As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic millions of consumers have been introduced to the convenience of personal care wipes. This has led to a dramatic increase in consumer demand for these products,” Kerscher adds.
