Windmill blade manufacturer LM Glasfiber on Friday broke ground on its new manufacturing plant and North American headquarters on 135 acres in the Little Rock Port.

Production is scheduled to begin there in the first quarter 2008. It will employ more than 1,000 people within five years, company executives say.

"As our company continues to expand, we are faced with a strong market demand in the U.S.," LM Glasfiber CEO Roland M. Sundén said. "Our location here in Little Rock will allow us to double the capacity of our existing North American facilities and meet the growing demand for renewable energy sources."

The plant will be LM Glasfiber's third production facility in North America, joining facilities in Grand Forks, N.D., and Gaspé, Quebec, Canada.

LM Glasfiber announced the plant in July.
