HARRISON, Ark. -- Thanks to a tax break brokered by city leaders, Pace Industries hopes to add close to 200 jobs in the coming months.
The furnace inside Pace sits at 1,300 degrees Farenheit. It carrys 50,000 pounds of molten aluminum. The company makes more than 1,000 different products. Its most famous is the Weber grill. The company even has its own robot that likes to draw.
The die casting company is busting at the seams with business, but that wasn't always the case.
"Last year we were one of those folks saying we had to do a layoff," said Pace Industrial Division President Michael Bakaric.
It was the first layoff in almost 10 years for the company.
Things have turned around and Pace is opening its doors to new employees once again, thanks to new business and a new expansion. The expansion should be done next February and will house 10 die cast machines.
