ARMOREL, AR - Mississippi County, which typically has one of the highest unemployment rates in northeast Arkansas, will get a much-needed boost when a new steel-related industry opens shop on a 30-acre site near Armorel.

Roll Coater will eventually employ 125 people at its plant which will be used to paint processed steel, which is then used in products such as truck trailers and refrigerators.

Construction on the new facility is to begin immediately. 

The announcement represents a $50 million investment in Mississippi County.
