Signode Industrial Group LLC will expand its operations in Fordyce, creating 31 new full-time jobs over the next 12 months.

Signode manufactures specialty bags for shipping at its Fordyce and Sheridan facilities.

The company has operated in Arkansas for nearly 50 years and currently has a total of 218 full-time employees across its facilities in Benton, Sheridan and Fordyce.

Along with its decision to expand at its Fordyce facility, the company also announced plans to re-purpose and grow its Sheridan operations as well.

While products currently produced at Sheridan will move to Fordyce, additional product lines will move into the Sheridan plant over the next year to utilize its existing skilled workforce. As part of this transition, each of the 23 employees currently working at the company’s Angleboard facility in Benton will have the opportunity to transfer to the Sheridan site.

Angleboard makes protective packaging.
