Fayetteville, AR – The city is celebrating its manufacturers this week as important contributors to the community.

Chung Tan, Director for Economic Development for the Chamber of Commerce says the manufacturing sector employs more than 5,500 people, and this appreciation week is geared toward making the job opportunities more visible.

The plants are opening their doors for tours, bringing in students from local schools to show them potential employers close to home.

“We get a tour of the facility to see how it's done, learn more about the career path, the skill sets needed, how to be successful in the sectors,” Tan says.

The tours continue through the week, and on Thursday each plant will receive a plaque recognizing their time in Fayetteville.
