Alberto-Culver Arkansas Plant to Employ 400

January 10, 2007

Hair and skin products company Alberto-Culver will open a plant in Jonesboro that will employ 400 people. Alberto-Culver Co., based in Melrose Park, said it will spend $60 million to construct the new factory and expects to break ground within the next two weeks. Plans call for a 500,000 square-foot building on 80 acres at the Jonesboro Industrial Park. Officials said the building can be expanded to 700,000 square-feet.

Company officials looked at 200 sites in a 21-state region before deciding to come to Jonesboro because of its land, available utilities, freight carriers, manufacturing base, strong schools and its trainable work force, he said. Production is scheduled to start in 2008, and the company expects to have 400 people working once the plant is at full speed.
