A Giant LEAP Forward for Arkansas

Project Title: RBDG Local Enterprise Assistance Program

A recent expansion of the Southwest Steel Processing plant in Northeast Arkansas provides an opportunity to improve the area’s economy well beyond the factory walls. This program seeks to create jobs by recruiting and assisting companies that can offer essential services to Southwest Steel Processing. Establishing a robust roster of local suppliers encourages the investment and job creation needed to improve the region’s quality of life.
