Bad Boy Mowers Expands Batesville, Arkansas, Manufacturing Plant

Bad Boy Mowers is expanding its operations in Batesville, Arkansas. The company will invest approximately $7.8 million in a 68,000 square-foot property across from its existing almost 1 million square-foot facility. The company plans to add approximately 160 new jobs in the future, which will bring its total employment to approximately 750.

“Bad Boy is excited about our continued growth, and our ability to continue adding good-paying jobs to our area. We are very proud of our partnership with the state of Arkansas, as well as our local community, and look forward to continued growth and success,” Bad Boy Owner Phil Pulley said.

The expansion is a result of an increase in demand for Bad Boy’s zero turn mower product line, as well as its sister company’s (Bad Boy Cutters) rotary cutter product line, as well as Bad Boy’s new accessory division, which will manufacture a variety of state of the art vehicle accessories, state economic development officials said.

“Bad Boy Mowers is a prime example of the entrepreneurial spirit in Arkansas,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “While still a relatively young company, Bad Boy has grown and continues to thrive here because of its strong leadership combined with a skilled and dedicated workforce. We appreciate the company’s ongoing commitment to doing business in Arkansas.

"The City of Batesville is proud to work closely with Bad Boy Mowers by helping facilitate their continued phenomenal growth,” said Rick Elumbaugh, Batesville’s Mayor. “They have consistently been an outstanding creator of new jobs in our community year after year and we look forward to their continued success."
