FORT SMITH, Ark. — The Fort Smith Board of Directors has approved a $100 million expansion for Owens Corning Plant.
On Tuesday (Dec. 15) city directors approved selling revenue bonds to help with the $100 million expansion.
The company is planning to expand the plant with five new hires as well as keeping all 79 current workers.
Before this was approved, there had been talks that the plant would close without the expansion.
