Gov. Mike Beebe and half of Arkansas’ Congressional delegation will be in Fort Smith on Tuesday (April 6) to join in a “community celebration” and thank Mitsubishi officials for their decision to build a wind-turbine manufacturing facility at Chaffee Crossing.
Mitsubishi Power Systems Americas announced Oct. 16 it will build a $100 million wind turbine manufacturing plant on 90 acres at Fort Chaffee that will employ up to 400 once fully operational.
Construction on the 200,000-square-foot building is set to begin in early 2011. You can read more from our content partner, The City Wire, at this link.
