Rohr Sheridan, Arkansas
Rohr Industries, Inc.
During the last half of the 1980's "commercial aircraft orders climbed drastically." This allowed Rohr to establish two new final assembly plants in Sheridan and Heber Springs, Arkansas (Kepos, 1994). The announcement to expand came in June of 1987 (Hulewicz, June 1989).
The Sheridan plant was the first Rohr facility in Arkansas. Production began in February of 1988. This facility assembled "commercial inlets for the 737-300, MD-80 and MD-11 aircraft and PW4000 and CF6-80C2 engines" (Hulewicz, 1989).
By 1990, Rohr Sheridan was employing 220 people (Rohr, 1990).
By December of 1990 the Sheridan plant was employing 228 people (Rohr News, December 1990).
