Netherlands-based Polymarin Composites, an international developer and manufacturer of high-performance rotor blades for the wind industry and a subsidiary of Emergya Wind Technologies (EWT), will locate to a new manufacturing facility in Little Rock, Ark.

Polymarin will invest $16 million in the facility and aims to employ 630 people. In addition, Wind Water Technology (WWT), a supplier to EWT, will be located in the same facility. WWT, which builds nacelles for the blades to facilitate movement, will invest $4 million in equipment and will employ 200 people. Together, Polymarin and WWT will employ approximately 830 people.

"Arkansas is rapidly becoming a center for the wind energy industry," says Gov. Mike Beebe, D-Ark. "Being able to combine new job opportunities with the advancement of sustainable energy is great news both for our economy and our state's future."
