MARMADUKE, AR - American Railcar Industries plans to build a $28 million manufacturing plant that will create 150 to 200 jobs in Marmaduke.  The Saint Charles, Missouri, company will be opening its second plant in the town.  Its first plant, which was damaged in an April 2 tornado, re-opened Monday.

Construction of the second plant is expected to begin later this year.  Plant production could start by early 2008.  The American Railcar plant will be adjacent to the company's tank-car manufacturing plant.  The 200,000-square-foot facility will be able to produce 200,500 railcars annually.

ARI also operates plants in Region 8 in Paragould and Kennett, Missouri.
