JONESBORO, AR - Officials with the Alberto-Culver Company, manufacturer of many of the top-selling hair and skin care products in the U.S., announced this afternoon that they will build a $60 million plant in Jonesboro.

Today's announcement came at a special meeting of Jonesboro Unlimited, an economic development arm of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce.  Alberto-Culver officials say the plant will employ at least 400 workers at full production.

The company is expected to break ground on a 500,000 square-foot manufacturing facility on an 80-acre site in the Jonesboro Industrial Park within the next two weeks.  Production at the plant is expected to begin in 2008.

Alberto-Culver is based in Melrose Park, Illinois, and manufactures popular hair care products such as Alberto VO5, Nexxus, and TRESemme, and skin care products such as St. Ives Formula.
