Nice-Pak announced they will hire over 100 workers for their manufacturing and distribution company here in Jonesboro. This was in response to the high demand of cleaning and hygiene products during this covid-19 pandemic.
“We are expanding our operations to keep up with the consumer demand. And we know there’s a lot of people in the community whose jobs have been impacted and we would like to help,” Michael Lyons said.
The company has started several product innovations during the covid-19 outbreak.
“I think it’s an amazing opportunity especially with the virus and everything going on,” Jamie Taylor said.
Stores have been stocked and restocked daily with cleaning products and some people have not been taking it lightly.
“A lot of the stores like are of course out of tissue and cleaning supplies. Prices have definitely gone up on a lot of those supplies like more than normal,” Taylor said.
With 10 years in the Jonesboro community, this is something they are passionate about helping people through this time.
Nice-Pak is looking for part-time and full-time workers such as machine operators, maintenance workers and clerical staff.
“But we’re really proud of the current employees who continue to work hard every day, we’re just looking for some reinforcement to come in,” Lyons said.
