MOUNTAIN HOME — Epoxyn Products announced plans Tuesday to expand its manufacturing facility in Mountain Home, creating 50 new jobs.
Epoxyn Products manufactures high-performance work-surface solutions for research, educational and health-care laboratory environments.
“An Arkansas-based company with a good product, combined with a good local work force, 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’ manufacturing centers,” said Gov. Mike Beebe, who attended the announcement.
Epoxyn Products is a subsidiary of Hamilton Scientific, a 132-year-old laboratory furniture and equipment supplier with corporate headquarters located in De Pere, Wis.
The Mountain Home manufacturer offers both 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.
“As the industry leader … we are focused on investing in our business to provide our global customers with the most innovative and highest quality products in the industry,” said Jack Roberts, president and CEO of Hamilton Scientific.
