FORREST CITY, AR - A Columbus McKinnon plant in Forrest City has been sold for almost $2 million to a private investor, Lindsey Cotton Manufacturing LLC.
The Binswanger real estate company, which brokered the deal, announced the sale.
The 256,700-square-foot plant on 37 acres ceases operating four years ago as part of consolidation efforts and the property has been vacant ever since. The one-story building was used to make hoists for the automotive and marine industries.
Binswanger did not say what plans the new owners have for the property.
