The Jonesboro Metropolitan Area Planning Commission will consider site plans for a new factory to be constructed on Highway 18 past the Butterball facility.

The 195-thousand square foot building will be owned by H&M Development Company and leased out to a yet-to-be-named tenant.

In a letter to the city of Jonesboro, the company stated the tenant plans to use the building for manufacturing purposes.

According to their website, H&M has worked with manufacturing facilities across the south including Winchester Ammunition, Pirelli Tire and Axis Pipe & Tube.

An announcement on who is coming is expected Wednesday afternoon.
