Two manufacturers in Little Rock have announced plans for a $6.4 million expansion that will create 43 new jobs.
G.C. Evans Sales and Manufacturing and Sleeve Seal announced the expansion Monday. The two companies are now based in a facility on south Woodrow Street but will move all operations to a site in south Little Rock as part of the expansion.
G.C. Evans makes packaging and processing equipment for the food, bottling and pharmaceutical industries, while Sleeve Seal supplies high-speed labeling equipment and shrink labels for the packaging industry.
The companies say the expansion will allow them to incorporate two new printing lines, which should lead to faster turn-around times for customers.
