Precision Surveillance Corp. said it will locate a new $1.5 million manufacturing facility in Russellville adding 25 jobs in the region.
PSC involves engineering, design, construction and fabrication services for the nuclear industry. Locating in Russellville is designed to serve Arkansas Nuclear One.
The company said it would initially hire up to 25 people and invest $1.5 million with the possibility for growth based on market demand. The company will locate in a 40,000-square-foot spec building in the city’s East End Industrial Park at 300 Industrial Boulevard.
“Precision Surveillance Corporation has worked with Entergy at Arkansas Nuclear One for many years now and we have always found the people and the local community to be beyond welcoming,” said Paul Smith, president of PSC. “It was therefore an easy decision when we needed more space and resources for our planned expansion to look to Russellville as the perfect location. I would like to thank the Arkansas Valley Alliance and its President Jeff Pipkin, along with the City as a whole, for its help and confidence in our endeavor. As President of PSC, I am convinced that together we have formed a team that will allow a long and prosperous future for both PSC and the city.”
Headquartered in East Chicago, Ind., PSC has worked with more than 24 nuclear power plants in North America.
“PSC is making a significant investment in the River Valley and its workforce,” said Grant Tennille, executive director of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission. “The company is creating high-tech jobs that will have a positive impact on the area’s economy and residents for years to come.”
