ARMI Acquires 80,000 square foot facility, adds 35 new jobs
Fayetteville, AR, May 23, 2019 – ARMI Manufacturing of NWA, an industrial metal manufacturer, celebrated their 16th year of operation by opening a new manufacturing facility. Located in Fayetteville’s Industrial Park, the 80,000-square-foot building is right down the road from their corporate home office. The company has had extensive growth since opening in 2003, making this their third facility. Since 2017, ARMI has doubled in size, and so far, this new development has created 35 jobs with plans to add even more opportunities.
“We’re very excited about opening this new location,” says Robert Kemp, Vice President of ARMI Manufacturing. “Not only is this an opportunity to create more jobs in the area, but it also allows us to expand our capabilities. This additional space will let us have designated work cells to maximize workflow in safe working conditions, also creating opportunities to take on new accounts. We’ve acquired one account that has grown over $3.5 million in less than 2 years, with them committing to grow 20% annually – and that is just one account.”
Arkansas Myriad (ARMI) started out performing specialty process and utility piping work, gaining them a positive reputation in the contracting sector – solely in food processing plants. Advancements and growth enabled them to provide specialized support services for manufacturing equipment which has evolved into incorporating an entire division dedicated to engineering and fabricating high quality, stainless-steel products. While all products are custom designed, ARMI has developed an entire line of their own standard products.
“Our reputation along with the relationships we’ve built throughout the industry have kept our phones ringing off the hook,” exclaims Brett Wolff, President of Arkansas Myriad. “We design, develop and manufacture products that don’t exist anywhere else, while providing the quickest turn-around times.”
On Thursday, May 23rd, local officials and members of the ARMI Manufacturing team met to commemorate the company’s decision to expand local operations with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
