Officials with Epoxyn Products announced Tuesday (Dec. 17) plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Mountain Home and create 50 new jobs.
Epoxyn is a Hamilton Scientific company and a leading manufacturer and fabricator of high-performance work-surface solutions for research, educational and health-care laboratory environments.
“As the industry leader in laboratory casework, workstations, fume hoods and epoxy resin tops, we are focused on investing in our business to provide our global customers with the most innovative and highest quality products in the industry.” Jack Roberts President and CEO of Hamilton Scientific, said in a statement issued by the Arkansas Department of Economic Development.
Epoxyn Products is part of Hamilton Scientific, a 132-year-old laboratory furniture and equipment supplier with corporate headquarters located in De Pere, Wisc. Epoxyn offers epoxy and phenolic resin, the two premier laboratory work surface materials. The company’s resin products include chemical-resistant, laboratory-grade epoxy work surfaces, sinks, balance tables, pegboards, fume hood tops and other components.
"Epoxyn's success is Mountain Home’s success," Gov. Mike Beebe said in the statement. "An Arkansas-based company with a good product, combined with a good local workforce, often results in the creation of more jobs and more investment. That's what we're seeing in Baxter County, and hope to see more of throughout Arkansas's manufacturing centers."
