Mundo-Tech, a tube bending and fabrication supplier for aerospace, defense and commercial companies, is investing $800,000 to expand its facility in Northwest Arkansas.
The expansion will create seven additional technology jobs and result in an additional building to house office and manufacturing space.
Mundo-Tech is at 1745 S. First St. in Rogers. The company is a “first-tier” supplier to numerous globally-recognized aerospace companies, Fortune 500 and space companies.
“Our state’s aerospace and defense sector continues to thrive thanks in part to suppliers like Mundo-Tech,” Arkansas Secretary of Commerce Mike Preston said in a statement. “The strength and dedication of Arkansas’ workforce make this expansion a natural, and it is gratifying to see small companies like Mundo-Tech continue to invest in our state and our communities.”
The expansion is a direct result of Mundo-Tech’s need to meet demand from major contractors, according to a news release. Mundo-Tech will build a 12,000-square-feet building to include 3,000 square feet of office space and 9,000 square feet of production space, which will double the size of its current 12,000-square-foot facility.
The company employs between 40 and 50 people.
