Company to Start Production at St. Francis County Plant Next Week

AUGUST 2, 2005 - Posted at 8:03 a.m. CDT

FORREST CITY, AR - A California-based company says it plans to begin some production next week in a plant at Colt, north of Forrest City near the Cross County line.  The plant originally announced back in March will make plastic parts for various kinds of baby seats.

Chuck George, a spokesman for K-Tops Plastic Manufacturing, said the company is now hiring workers and production should start on August 8.  K-Tops Vice President Bruce Hsieh said the target date for beginning full-scale mass production at the facility is a week later, on August 15.

Hsieh said company officials hope to begin with 70 to 80 employees, with future plans for more than 200 once a third phase of operations is completed in early 2006.
