AAF to add 58 jobs in Fayetteville
Louisville, Ky.-based American Air Filter Co. (AAF) will invest $516,000 in its Fayetteville plant and add an estimated 58 jobs.
The Fayetteville plant, which makes panel and pleated air filters for a wide variety of end users, now employs 112. The plant is located at 2355 S. Armstrong Ave.
On May 15, AAF closed a similar operation in Hutchins, Texas, that employed 100 hourly and salaried workers.
“AAF is creating 58 good jobs for Arkansans through this expansion, highlighting the importance of our existing companies,” Grant Tennille, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, said in a statement. “AAF’s decision to expand in Arkansas is a testament to the skills and work ethic of the company’s existing workforce.”
