PARAGOULD, AR - American Railcar Industries broke ground today on a new paint shop at its Paragould facility that will employ 90 new workers.  Company executives, city government and state economic development officials were on hand for the ceremony this morning in Paragould.

The projected investment will be approximately $10 million for building and equipment.  The estimated completion date for the project is April 2006, and hiring will begin two weeks prior to the completion date.  This marks the second major announcement by ARI in the past twelve months. 

K8 News had a crew at the scene for today's announcement, and will have a full report tonight on K8 News at Six.
