Arlee Home Fashions, an advanced manufacturer of decorative home fashion and pet products, announced plans to invest in West Plains, Missouri. The new expansion represents $300,000 in capital investment and is expected to create up to 80 new jobs in the region.
“We’re excited to see Arlee Home Fashions growing and creating jobs in West Plains, which will benefit the local community for years to come,” said Governor Mike Parson. “Arlee’s commitment to a local workforce means more Missourians will help manufacture quality products found in stores across the country. We congratulate the community of West Plains on this great news and look forward to the company’s continued success.”
Arlee’s expansion is expected to further its manufacturing capabilities and meet growing needs of the home and pet markets. Arlee Home Fashions is a top producer for large retailers nationwide and manufactures decorative home fashion items in addition to pet products.
“This project was made possible by owners who continue to trust our local partners, who take part in the design, development, production, and shipping right here in West Plains,” said Gary Mann, Vice President of Operations for Arlee Home Fashions. “This is not only an opportunity to bring more jobs to the area, but it also allows us to broaden our capabilities and meet the growing demand for our products. We look forward to another 30 years in the welcoming community of West Plains, which has always provided the support Arlee needs to grow and succeed.”
