American Freightways To Expand Arkansas Headquarters
December 22, 1999
American Freightways, Harrison, AR, announced it is expanding its workforce and office facilities located at Harrison.
Over the next five years, the less-than-truckload carrier expects to add 500 management, administrative and clerical positions to its Harrison workforce, up from the current 873.
To accommodate the increased work force, American Freightways
will add a 90,000-square-foot wing to its offices. A 5,000-square-foot credit union and a 3,700-square-foot print shop will also be built on site. The company's present facilities include 161,100 square feet under roof located on 51 acres.
A new employee parking lot will accommodate 724 automobiles. Two retention ponds and landscaping will give the finished project a business park appearance.
The entire project will be completed and occupied by September 7, 2000, and will cost about $12.5 million.
