J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. is increasing its workforce and expanding its corporate headquarters in Lowell, Arkansas.

“In the past five years, J.B. Hunt has been successful in growing revenues from $3.8 billion to $6.2 billion,” CEO John Roberts said. “This accomplishment would not be possible without our dedicated employees. As J.B. Hunt’s mark on the transportation industry gets larger, so will our workforce. Many new, full-time jobs will be created during the next six years to aid in this growth. J.B. Hunt is built on a foundation of innovation, tenacity and employees working together to offer exceptional services to our customers and communities.”

“J.B. Hunt is an Arkansas institution and one of our state’s best entrepreneurial success stories,” Asa Governor Hutchinson said. “The company started small more than 50 years ago, and they have proven that hard-working, talented employees and great leadership can propel you to the top. J.B. Hunt has been a positive economic driver in Arkansas and has shown an unwavering support for our community. We are excited about J.B. Hunt’s future growth.”

“It is always a great day in Northwest Arkansas when we get to make expansion and job creation announcements,” President/CEO of the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce, Raymond Burns. “J.B.
