— Windmill maker LM Glasfiber is hiring 300 people for its Little Rock factory, which is planned to eventually have 1,000 workers.

The company has begun production at a temporary site in south Little Rock with about 200 workers. Glasfiber is building a $150 million manufacturing plant at the Port of Little Rock and expects to be at full employment after about five years.

The Denmark-based company is adding production technicians and hopes to have all the new workers on board by the end of the year. Glasfiber says it wants workers with two years of manufacturing experience.

"This is a great investment for Little Rock as far as the wind energy industry. And we're just looking to get good people to help build our blades," Glasfiber spokeswoman Donna Taylor.

With the addition of Little Rock, LM Glasfiber has three locations in North America. The Little Rock site will become the company's North American headquarters.
