Earlier this week, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced firearms manufacturer CZ-USA would move its headquarters and open a production facility in Little Rock, creating 565 new jobs.
Nearly 300 foreign-owned companies have operations in the state; however, CZ-USA is the first Czech company.
“As CZ looked to increase our presence in North America, it engaged in a multi-state search for the ideal location,” said Bogdan Heczko, CZ-USA chairman of the board. “The Arkansas workforce, culture, business climate and industry support cleared the way for us to choose Little Rock.”
