J.B. Hunt Adding 1,000 New Jobs

- LOWELL, Ark. - Transportation services company J.B. Hunt is expected to add more than 1,000 jobs as it expands its presence in Lowell, where it is headquartered, Gov. Asa Hutchinson announced on Wednesday. 

In September, J.B. Hunt broke ground on a new 133,000 square-foot central office building that is scheduled for completion in spring 2017. 

J.B. Hunt said it expects to add more than 1,000 jobs in The Natural State over the next six years. 

Hutchinson called J.B. Hunt one of Arkansas' "best entrepreneurial success stories." 

“In the past five years, J.B. Hunt has been successful in growing revenues from $3.8 billion to $6.2 billion,” CEO John Roberts said. “This accomplishment would not be possible without our dedicated employees. As J.B. Hunt’s mark on the transportation industry gets larger, so will our workforce. Many new, full-time jobs will be created during the next six years to aid in this growth. 

Lowell Mayor Eldon Long said, "I am extremely pleased that J.B. Hunt Transport has decided to expand its corporate campus here in Lowell. The company’s continued attention in providing excellent services to its patrons across the continent has resulted in growth, success and expansion here at home and abroad."
