Road Systems Inc. of Searcy, which makes freight trailers and other transportation equipment, said three new contracts will enable it to hire 120 new workers.

A subsidiary of publicly traded CNF Inc., Road Systems said it has filled about 40 percent of the jobs needed at its 200,000-SF plant in Searcy. The average wage at the company is about $14.47.

Road Systems did not name the companies with which it has new contracts. It said it obtained the contracts after CNF changed a policy allowing Road Systems to market its trailers to trucking companies throughout the country. Road Systems said it projects a 400 percent growth in business in 2004.

Road Systems opened in Searcy in 1994.
