Bryce Corp. breaks ground on new AR plant

Memphis, TN-based Bryce Corp. held a groundbreaking ceremony Aug. 24 for the company’s new manufacturing facility in Searcy, AR. The new facility will house state-of-the-art process equipment and generate 142 new jobs.

In April, Bryce announced a five-year strategic growth plan that includes an $80-million investment in the Searcy facility, which will expand the company’s physical footprint, house state-of-the-art process equipment, and grow the company’s asset base. 

Bryce has demonstrated a generational commitment to family and community throughout its history. Tom Bryce, chairman and CEO of Bryce Corp., and Sean Bowie, Bryce Corp. president, provided remarks during the groundbreaking ceremony. “Our family is celebrating 100 years in packaging,” says Tom, a third-generation Bryce family member. “We are grateful for the role Searcy has played in our history and the role it will play in our future. Our five-year strategic growth plan is a commitment to this generation and the next.”
