Brad Lacy, president and CEO of the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and Conway Development Corporation (CDC), reflects on the CDC's 60th anniversary.
Conway-based manufacturer SFI Arkansas today announced plans to expand its facility and hire up to 75 new employees over the next 18 months.
Structurlam Mass Timber Corporation, the leading mass timber manufacturer in North America, will expand its operations into the United States, with a plant in Conway, Ark., set to open in mid-2021. The Canadian-based company will invest $90 million to purchase, retrofit and equip a former steel plant and create 130 new jobs, and will source softwood lumber from Arkansas-grown Southern Pine trees.
To me, Conway is the best of both worlds: it has all the advantages of a big city with the heart of a small town. It is a warm and welcoming, entrepreneurial, growing, and spirited community.
