Polyethylene Products Manufacturer Revolution Expands Little Rock, Arkansas, Operations
The expansion, expected to create more than 60 jobs within the next two years, will add two new blown film lines capable of producing 40 million-plus pounds of film products per year.
“The partnerships we formed and the support we have received at the local and state levels for this expansion project is a testament to the strength of the Little Rock community and the great state of Arkansas,” said Sean Whiteley, CEO of Revolution. “We are grateful to work with such exceptional people who are committed to economic growth and environmentally sustainable business solutions. Based on increased business demand, strong customer relationships, and our strategic growth plan, the time is right to move forward with this major expansion.”
“From the beginning, we have been unified by a single powerful mission of preserving our environment for future generations,” said Whiteley. “We do this by diverting millions of pounds of plastic from landfills each year and turning it back into new products through our innovative collection and recycling processes.”
“Revolution is a homegrown company that has grown from its humble beginning in Stuttgart to become an international leader in the manufacture and recycling of plastic goods,” Governor Asa Hutchinson said. “Their dedication to manufacturing sustainable products is the way of the future put into practice in the present. Revolution is an excellent corporate citizen and a perfect fit for Arkansas.”
“This expansion speaks volumes about Revolution's continued confidence in Arkansas,” Secretary of Commerce Mike Preston said. “Revolution is a leader in our business community, and I am pleased by its ongoing investment in our workforce and economy.”
According to state officials, investment at the Little Rock facility will enable Revolution to continue growing its product line of polyethylene products that include; construction film and sheeting, agriculture film, silo and dairy bags, and geomembrane film. Ronnie Dedman, chairman of the Little Rock Regional Chamber, said, “Existing business expansion is the foundation of our economic development efforts at the chamber. Revolution’s investment in its Arkansas facility secures existing jobs and promises future growth for our city and our region.”
