Jonesboro City Council Approves Proposed Bonds For Unilever Expansion

August 7, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The city council of Jonesboro in Arkansas voted unanimously to authorize $41 million in revenue bonds to help finance the continuation of Unilever’s expansion project at its manufacturing plant in the city. Unilever’s proposed expansion will not include construction of any new facilities; however, it will expand its product lines and use equipment relocated from recently closed Unilever plants in Melrose Park, Illinois, and Clinton, Connecticut. With 70–80 employees already hired, the expanded plant will hire additional employees by the middle of 2014, with hourly wages ranging from $14 for the least skilled jobs to $23 for more skilled positions.
