Wet Wipe Maker Expands in Arkansas

Rockline Industries, a Wisconsin-based manufacturer of private-label coffee filters and wet wipes, will construct a new wet-wipe factory in Booneville, Arkansas. The company has purchased an existing 1.2 million-square-foot facility and plans to begin production by the end of this year, with more than 200 new jobs anticipated when the plant is completed. Nick Santoleri, the company's vice president of manufacturing, cited the excellent condition of the building and the proximity to Rockline's other wet-wipe factory in Springdale, Arkansas, as primary reasons for the site selection. He says the company will train new employees at the existing facility while the new building is renovated, allowing for a faster start of production than would otherwise be possible.
