CoorsTek Begins Expansion in Benton, Arkansas

CoorsTek Inc., a privately-owned manufacturer of technical ceramic components, started construction on a 50,000 square foot expansion at its facility in Benton, Arkansas.

As part of the $26 million expansion, CoorsTek will increase its workforce by approximately 15 percent.

In addition to a new 50,000-square-foot facility, CoorsTek plans on purchasing several cutting edge pieces of manufacturing equipment to support growing demand for aerospace and defense-related industries. It currently has 180,000 square feet of manufacturing space and employs more than 200 people in Benton.

“CoorsTek is pleased to announce expansion of our Benton facility. This expansion will provide new jobs supporting the aerospace and defense industries, and supporting manufacturing in central Arkansas,” said Jonathan Coors, co-CEO at CoorsTek. “As we continue to grow globally, we are committed to the long-term strength of the local communities where we live and work”.

“I am thrilled to see a company like CoorsTek grow and prosper in Arkansas,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “CoorsTek is a great example of an advanced manufacturing company that has put its faith in our talented and dedicated workforce. They are a strong community partner, and I look forward to a great relationship for many years to come.”

“We are honored that a company the caliber of CoorsTek would choose the City of Benton for expansion,” said Mayor Tom Farmer, “as they could've chosen anywhere in the world. We are excited that they will be providing job opportunities for more of our citizens, and we are excited about working with them for possible future projects.”
