Rockline Industries, one of the world's largest manufacturers of coffee filters and consumer, health care, industrial and institutional wet wipes, will invest over $18 million in additional production lines at its three wet wipes manufacturing facilities in Springdale, Russellville and Bonneville, Arkansas.

As part of the expansion, Rockline is expected to add a total of 100 new jobs. The new equipment will include high capacity wet wipe production lines in Rockline's 370,000-square-foot facility in Springdale, its 240,000-square-foot facility in Russellville and its 1.2 million-square-foot facility in Booneville.

"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," said Ron Kerscher, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Rockline.

Founded in 1976 and headquartered in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Rockline has repeatedly created first-to-market product design solutions for the wet wipe consumer and continues to provide innovative products to the nonwovens industry. The family owned company employs nearly 2,500 people worldwide and has manufacturing facilities in Wisconsin, Arkansas, New Jersey,?Tennessee and England.

"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 added.
